The mock up cover of my first book coming November 10!
Today, the FDA regulates medications available to Americans. But it takes an average of ten years to bring a new drug to market. Every day thousands of Americans die unnecessarily from fatal diseases for which lifesaving treatments that now exist or are being developed are ruled too “dangerous” for commercial distribution. But how does that FDA standard apply to someone in the terminal stages of cancer or ALS?
Right to Try is filled with stories of heroism and heartbreak—of courageous Americans who beat illnesses no one thought could be defeated; parents who won the fight to get their children access to cutting-edge cures; patients who were denied life-saving treatments by the government ostensibly for their own protection; and incredible doctors and researchers pioneering revolutionary cures. Drawing on her experience fighting for patients, Darcy Olsen goes inside the federal bureaucracy that is stopping millions from accessing these lifesaving treatments, lays out the case for expanding access to experimental medicines, and describes the ongoing national campaign to change these laws state-by-state.
Cogent and persuasive, this powerful and informative book is clarion call for reform that definitively answers the question: When your mortality hangs in the balance, shouldn’t you have the right to try to save your own life?

One of my greatest joys is watching how the children care for each other. Love makes a family.
