Christine Mangiati - Clinical Trials

"I declined clinical trials when I was diagnosed and it was because I could not believe I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I do not have a history of it in my family and I have the worst kind of breast cancer you can get. Only 3% of the people get inflammatory breast cancer, there's no research on it. They don't have a clue. So, I was, I emotionally just fell apart when I was diagnosed. My only concern, what I said to my doctor was, because I live in Oregon I have the benefit of two things, I have assisted suicide and I have medical marijuana. I said "I'm engaging right now my right to assisted suicide", and so I filled out a 'Do Not Resuscitate' right away and filed it at the hospital."
