Hello Friends:

I’m wondering if anyone here has joined the pathfinder study and if they found the testing correct? They take your blood and then if they find you have results pointing to a type of cancer then you are sent for diagnostics.

Just curious if anyone has been part of the study here?

We are joining the study next wk. so thought I’d ask to see what people’s opinions are of the study if they joined.

There are I think 6 sites across the US that have the study part of their system

yeah. I would think there are people who have joined. But maybe people don’t know about the study. So I wanted to share.

You’re welcome! I’m surprised there aren’t more people here in the study. It seems like a very interesting study to me!

I’m anxious to get my results.

I don't live near any of the locations. Being hig risk for Covid 19, I don't go anywhere unless absolutely necessary. I'm sure others feel the same. This isn't normal times so enrollment into studies won't be normal.

Mavericksmom: true there could be some who can't join this study for various reasons. You also have to be over 50 and have to be 3 yrs post cancer. I just passed the 3 yr post cancer qualification.

There are many people not high risk. I'm one of the many. So I wanted others to know about this study. There may be many like myself who aren't high risk who really would love to be part of this study. I'm starting the study this week so will see how it goes.

This is a very exciting study! I would encourage people to join the study!! There are a couple qualifications....have to be over 50 yrs old and have to be 3 yrs post cancer treatment if you have had cancer.
