Cancer Treatment Centers of America Honors Driver with Trip to Hollywood

To Ken Kupiec, an all-expenses paid trip to Hollywood is nice. But the greater honor is the job he's done every day for more than 4 years. The 69-year old has worked as a driver for Cancer Treatment Centers of America in Juniata Park for 4 years, 4 months.

The Three Words That Change Your Life Forever: You Have Cancer

Mesa, Arizona mom of three and devoted wife, Wendi Tufts was diagnosed with breast cancer in February of 2014. “My family is the number one reason I want to be here and win the fight against cancer,” she said. “Hearing those three words, ‘you have cancer,’ changes your life. You aren’t quite sure what to do next, where to turn, who to call or how to tell your children.  So you cry, and you cry more. And then you take a deep breath and gear up for the fight of your life.”

For Cancer Patients, When Does the Wound Deserve the Same Attention as the Disease?

For individuals fighting cancer, nothing is more important than the curative treatment regimen. However, when a wound occurs, the focus shifts and the goal becomes managing the wound to enable continuation of curative treatment.
