Clinical Trials

Tigerlily Foundation’s Clinical Trials Program is a transformational initiative to accelerate the delivery of innovative treatments to our patients, with a strategic focus on populations that are facing the highest disparities. 

Why do we do this work?

  • We know that most patients of color are not offered trials until their cancers are at a more advanced stage.

  • We know that people of color are underrepresented in clinical trials, yet have the highest mortality rates across multiple disease states.

  • We know that is unacceptable.

  • We are working to transform the clinical trial landscape by building trust and transparency, to achieve equity in clinical trials in this lifetime by holding stakeholders accountable and dismantling barriers for patients of color.

FACT #1

Black people account for less than 5% of participants in clinical trials.

FACT #2

Black women under 35 get breast cancer at two times the rate of white women and die at three times the rate.

(Lisa A. Carey. et al., “Race, Breast Cancer Subtypes, and Survival in the Carolina Breast Cancer Study,” Journal of the American Medical Association) 

FACT #3

Lack of diversity and representation in clinical trials are the primary reasons why it is not known which treatments are most effective treatments for Black women with breast cancer.

FOCUS GROUP – Virtual

We are hosting a focus group dedicated to Black women with breast cancer who have not participated in a trial. We aren’t here to try to change your mind-you are the expert on you, and we respect that! Our goal with this group is to create a safe space for you to openly share your experiences, concerns, and any fears that impacted your decision. We will be holding space, listening, and learning from you-the expert!
