Carla Woods founded Fight To Live in 2011. Having spent her entire career in the biomedical industry, Carla became increasingly dismayed at the slow pace of FDA assessment and approval for promising drugs and medical devices. As she researched the issue further, her dismay turned into outrage that Americans were being denied life-enhancing and potentially life-saving treatments—solely for bureaucratic and technocratic reasons. Woods concluded that the system no longer worked and needed to be modernized to spur future progress and eliminate unnecessary premature deaths.
