Cancer Patients Speak OutStreaming Video - 2006
This program presents the reality of cancer as experienced by patients. Commentary from Dr. Julia Rowland, director of the NCI's Office of Cancer Survivorship, focuses on a patient's quality of life as cancer treatment proceeds, as well as the impact of the disease on a patient's family. Five patients of varied ages and at different stages of the disease-including a 28-year-old woman with breast cancer and a 54-year-old man with Hodgkin's lymphoma and lung cancer-progress with their families and caregivers through diagnosis, treatment, and the hopes and uncertainties that follow. A Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center Production.
