The Driving Force Behind Dr Jeffrey Weber

They say you don't really know cancer until the disease affects you personally, and for Jeffrey Weber, M.D., it's been a personal journey getting to know and fighting the disease. In 2005, the Cancer Treatment Centers of American doctor lost his own daughter, Annie, to sarcoma when she was just 24 years old.

"The feeling of helplessness is profound and can only be, to a small degree, countered by dedication of your mind, talents and emotion to doing everything you can to help others who find themselves in a similar situation."

Registered dietitians at Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) educate patients on the benefits of a plant-based diet at all points throughout treatment. Kristen Trukova, MS, RD, LDN, CNSC, CSO, clinical oncology dietitian at CTCA at Midwestern Regional Medical Center, shares how CTCA® offers survivors nutritional education and support.
