Newswise — LEXINGTON, Ky. (April 3, 2013) ― "Relapse" is a word no cancer patient ever wants to hear.

For Betty Powers, a patient at the University of Kentucky Markey Cancer Center in Lexington, Ky., that was the news she was given by her oncologist almost two years ago.

In this video feature, Powers shares her story of why she decided to fight back by participating in a clinical trial. She describes what it is like to be participant and explains, in her own words, the value she now places on clinical trials.
