I’m Dumbfounded

Two weeks ago I participated in a clinical trial for colon cancer, not that I have it. I did it because my gastroenterologist suggested me to them. It took about an hour of answering questions, giving 5 vials of blood, and the next day, a stool sample. It was picked up. Well, I received my reward last week, but didn’t bother to open it until this morning. I received $275!!! I’m dumbfounded! I was told it would be much less. Nice way to begin such a beautiful, sunny day!

Congratulations Dianne, when you think that most of the time you have to pay when they get 5 vials of blood.

@DianneN Also our insurance covers everything, but we pay the insurance of course.

@LadyDuck We don’t have to pay for insurance thanks to my husband’s health benefits from his career. One less thing to worry about.

Its seems as if you have donated blood, and received some reward in return. Nevertheless, a nice earn.

It was more than donating blood, but the reward was much more than I was told I’d receive. Thanks!

I'm pretty dumblosted myself, but now I'll go read more than just the title of the discussion Edit: Okay, I'm back, and I don't think I would be interested in a trial of colon cancer, don't want it and don't care to try it on a trial basis.

Congratulations Dianne, this was well worth the time it took to do this. Not to mention you've helped them do research, to find a cure for colon cancer

I think I would have to pay someone to listen to me for an hour... That's a nice reward for a small investment of time.

Wow... Glad that you got $275, no doubt you lost 5 vial of your precious blood. So what's your plans with the $275?

Thanks! Funny, but I had one more vial of blood taken the next day for my colonoscopy. I will probably put the money in my special savings account until I can decide what to do with it.

Didn't you know that it's a paid clinical trial? It's similar to a survey and you will get paid when it's done. Anyway congratulations. The reward money is good for your savings if you do for future use.
