To celebrate the legacy of Jason Carter, and his drive to make a difference, Governor Mark Dayton has proclaimed Sept. 21, 2018 as Jason Carter Clinical Trials Program Day.

After living with leukemia for more than four years, and participating in two clinical trials, Jason Carter passed away in May 2016 at the age of 28. Jason loved fishing, skiing the mountains of Montana, perfecting recipes and taking photos of his outdoor adventures.

To continue Jason’s legacy by helping to get more people to participate in clinical trials, the Carter family created the Jason Carter Clinical Trials Program with a generous donation to the Be The Match Foundation®, the fundraising organization that supports Be The Match®.

The program has many free and confidential services for patients and their families, including: One-on-one nurse support with assistance in finding clinical trials; an easy-to-use online clinical trial search tool; and easy-to-understand clinical trial descriptions.

Please join us in celebrating Jason Carter’s life-saving legacy.
