Cancer has unfortunately been a part of my life for a really long time. My dad, a heavy chain-smoker, was diagnosed with lung cancer when I was 17 years old. He died just a few days later.
Recently, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center started an integrative medicine pilot program for pediatric and young adult patients with the hope of easing the side effects of their cancer treatments.
As we work toward finding cancer cures in today’s digital era, it’s easy to forget that not all innovation is high-tech. In recent years, oncology centers have embraced practices such as yoga, meditation and acupuncture.
