Sharing Hope

Sometimes, the only people who really understand are those who have had cancer touch their lives

Find the Target, Take Aim

Nancy Van Dyke was so healthy she had never taken an antacid. A gastrointestinal attack in June 2015 led to a surprise trip to her local hospital and within a half hour, doctors suspected the problem was more than gallstones. She was diagnosed with cancer -- they weren't clear of the original location -- that had metastasized to her liver and chest.

The Cancer Center in Community

While you may already be familiar with the lifesaving work within the walls of the Cancer Center, you may not be aware of our active presence in the community. Through our Community Outreach Program, faculty, staff and volunteers share the latest information and answer questions about cancer and what can be done to prevent it.

Support Systems

Heidi Woodward Sheffield looks back on the past two-and-a-half years of surgeries, chemotherapy, radiation therapy and reconstruction with relief. She is cancer-free and feels fortunate to have had a sense of rebirth throughout the process. In retrospect, she shares her best bets on coping, accepting help and support systems.
