Cancer is scary. We all know someone who has battled cancer. Cancer is the second most common cause of death in the United States, killing a half million people of all ages nationwide each year.  For many, simply being diagnosed with cancer can feel like a death sentence.

But as scary as cancer is, we have made great progress in our understanding and treatment of cancer. It is undeniable that the outcome for a person with cancer is much better today than it has ever been throughout history, or even within recent memory.

This program will outline the history of cancer treatment and outcomes, best current practices, and preview what is on the horizon for the next generation of cancer treatments.
