I can not vouch for the veracity for the rest of this article but the comment attributed to me is a bald face lie. I never said that Cancer Treatment Centers of American or Goldwater Institute paid for the initial research and focus groups for Right to Try. Neither party provided any money nor were reimbursement requested of them. This research on Right to Try was paid for by my partner and I. This was our donation because we believe those with terminal illness should have a choice. Something I became acutely aware of while touring Cancer Treatment Centers of America facilities. The topic of the research and who paid for it was pointed out clearly and repeatedly during the 10 minute interview. I am really disappointed in the Arizona Republic and expect better. They obviously had an agenda and wanted to frame it as such.
