A Cancer Diagnosis

Approximately 40 percent of all individuals will be diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime. That's a startling statistic, and one that our doctors and staff are constantly working to change. We'll help you learn about the disease, show you how to recognize ways to improve your health, offer ways to help build a personal support system, and offer a sense of extended family.
