Thompson was the first to bring cancer clinical trials to East Tennessee more than 25 years ago. Clinical trials are research studies designed to answer specific questions and find better ways to treat different types of cancer.  In fact, the reason why we have seen dramatic progress in recent years and treatments are continually getting better is because there are new drugs available as a direct result of clinical trials.

The staff here, I just can’t say enough about them. They have made a stressful situation a lot more pleasant. I’m encouraged that they have the new technology and that I’m getting to be a participant in that.
