Why CTRC

When a person hears a diagnosis of cancer, priorities change. Suddenly your biggest concern is how do I get through this?


The first order of business is deciding where to get help. There's much to consider:

  • Who specializes in treating this disease?
  • Will I have to travel to a different city to get top-notch care?
  • Will the doctors care how I want to approach my cancer?
  • What if I want to investigate nontraditional treatments?
  • How will I manage this fear and anxiety? Or the pain?
  • Can I find a place where I'm more than just a name on a file?
  • How will I find out if there are new treatments or new drugs?
  • How can I learn to live with this?

Making that first decision is empowering but making it isn't always easy. At the Cancer Therapy & Research Center, we want patients to know exactly who we are, what we do, and how we do it. That way, you can make an informed decision that will affect not only you, but also your family and others around you.
