Tigerlily Foundation’s Clinical Trials Program is a transformational initiative to accelerate delivery of innovative treatments to our patients, with a strategic focus on populations that are facing the highest disparities. The facts are that most patients are not offered trials until their cancers are at a more advanced stage. People of color are represented as only 3% of clinical trials participators, yet have the highest mortality rates across multiple disease states.

Ensuring diversity in clinical trials is not a one-size-fits all approach and we endeavor to reach people where they are. Our program provides educational and tangible resources designed to eliminate barriers, while collaborating with all stakeholders at the table.

FACT #1

Black people’s 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 in clinical trials is one of the primary reasons that there are not treatments specifically targeting Black women in 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!
