“We have a bold vision where every child at BC Children’s has access to a clinical trial when it’s needed. Where families searching for hope are given the chance to enroll in experimental therapies. Where kids have access to the most innovative treatment options in the world, right here at BC Children’s. Where we no longer say to a family, ‘we have no other options.’ Through the establishment of the Clinical Trials Super Hub, this vision will be a reality.”
