Jason Carter’s Story and Legacy

Jason Carter had leukemia for 4½ years and passed away in May 2016, at age 28. He participated in 2 clinical trials, which gave him more time with his family. Jason loved fishing, skiing the mountains of Montana and perfecting recipes in the kitchen. He also enjoyed taking photos during his outdoor adventures, some of which are featured on this website.

"Jason wanted to make a difference. He tried every new treatment and therapy possible. It was still not enough," says his mother Diana.
The Carters want to continue Jason's legacy by helping to get more people to participate in clinical trials. "That number must greatly increase for outcomes to improve more quickly," says his father, Bob.
