No matter who you are, a cancer diagnosis is tough to hear.
Questions flood your brain: Will you be able to mark the milestones you always expected — a fulfilling career, kids, grandkids, a relaxing retirement or that special trip? Will you find the right doctors, the right treatments and the right hospital to outmaneuver cancer?
You should know that today more than 50 percent of all cancers are cured — yes, cured — because of early detection and innovative treatments.
Redefining cancer care
