“A Place Where Cancer Is the Norm” – The New York Times

Cancer is a world no one volunteers to enter, yet there are places where the disease and all its treatments is considered completely normal.  In the October 25, 2009 edition of the NY Times Magazine, a feature on M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas delivers an in-depth look at how innovative treatments and clinical trials make visiting the top cancer centers in the country so compelling for people facing rare or advanced stage malignancies.

Did you feel your choice of hospital and doctors for your cancer treatment was a good one or do the big cancer centers really deliver a more positive outcome than a local doctor, hospital or cancer center?  Talking about assembling your medical team can be a great way to share insight and advice with someone new to the world of cancer — how would you advise a friend or loved one to make sure they had the best chance for success?
