Employees of WVU Medicine and the WVU Cancer Institute came together on Monday, May 20 to join organizations across the world in celebrating Clinical Trials Day on May 20. This day recognizes those who conduct clinical trials, raises awareness of clinical trials and clinical research, and is an opportunity to show gratitude for the work they do to improve public health.
What started with a small gift between friends has now evolved into the larger “gift of humanity.” Lemons of Love was started in 2014 after the founder, Jill Swanson Peltier, was diagnosed with Stage III Colon Cancer. Jill had received a small goodie bag from a friend with a few items that were meant to help her through her chemotherapy treatment. Touched by the kindness and thoughtfulness of this gift, she knew that this was something that everyone starting their battle with cancer should receive. Jill envisioned being able to give others the same support that she received, in the form of a simple gift that makes a big impact.
