Findings also confirm that patients and caregivers value open communication with their care team, which is often not part of their treatment experience.

Healthier Future – Now

Dr. Bruce Gershenhorn, an oncologist at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), is on the front lines of this fight. Gershenhorn, who treats mostly lung cancer patients, has seen up-close how recent breakthroughs are making a difference.

At CTCA, doctors are taking a new approach to cancer treatment. Instead of the old one-size-fits-all model, doctors are trying to understand the unique engines or drivers of the cancer. Based on the cancer mutation, a specific drug is being chosen to hopefully attack the cancer’s root.
