“Thanks to advances in medicine women can and do live for years with metastatic cancer. This program gives patients, as well as their families, the opportunity to learn more about the disease and develop the skills necessary to become an active and informed partner with their treatment team,” said Jerri Garison, president, Baylor Regional Medical Center at Plano.
Information will be provided about survivorship issues, new treatments, and concerns for women newly diagnosed with metastatic cancer, in order to empower them to be active participants in their cancer journey.
