"A patient who is fully in control of his or her decisions is empowered, involved, and on the path to overcoming any obstacles or setbacks that arise in the course of treatment of their disease. Feeling helpless in your care can be crippling and hinder the fight against cancer. That's what I love the most about Cancer Treatment Centers of America – its focus on empowering patients."
