Today, there is an entirely new basis for hope among cancer patients, thanks to targeted therapies and other treatment advances. But what hasn’t changed is the importance of the commitment I make, which is to bring compassion, patience, and understanding to state-of-the-art cancer care” expressed the doctor.
