January 2016 - Quest for a cure: The past, present and future of cancer care

Until powerful tools of supercomputers and genomics fortified the effort, the war on cancer was, at best, a story of progress in fits and starts. Although the effort has at times seemed slow and frustrating, those difficult early steps have cut the path for today’s and tomorrow’s era of targeted, more specific, increasingly effective cancer treatments—discoveries that could make the coming decade’s quest to cure cancer more consequential than the past century and a half’s.

December 2015 - The care manager's role in the fight against cancer

As if cancer's physical and emotional toll wasn’t enough, you also find yourself juggling the many logistics involved—keeping track of the myriad doctor appointments and treatment visits, ordering and collecting your medical records, filling and refilling your prescriptions, filing disability or other necessary paperwork. The to-do list can seem endless, and many cancer patients become overwhelmed by the sheer volume of the tasks and responsibilities involved. Enter the care manager. At each of our five hospitals, she—or he—is the heart of the patient’s care team, dedicated to helping the patient and family navigate the cancer journey, before, during and after treatment.

October 2015 - Reconstructive surgery for head, neck and breast cancer patients

Cancer operations that change how patients look, feel or function may have significant implications on their quality of life after surgery. That’s where reconstructive plastic surgeons can play a major role, offering options to help patients—both men and women—regain their confidence, dignity and sense of self.

September 2015 - Living with lung cancer

Lung cancer is among the most widely discussed cancers, and with good reason. It is one of the most common cancers in the United States, behind just prostate cancer in men and breast cancer in women. A lot is known about the disease, but many people are unaware of its reach, or its impact. Or the many ways it is treated today.
