Big Brothers Big Sisters

Mission:

Their trained professionals offer hope and encouragement to the people they serve, while providing safe, compassionate, high-quality care.

Medical oncology is the specialty of internal medicine that deals with the diagnosis, management and treatment of cancer. Medical oncologists are physicians who have specialized knowledge of all aspects of the treatment of cancer, including chemotherapy, surgery, radiation therapy and biotherapy.

At Coborn Cancer Center, medical oncologists typically manage the care of cancer patients. They routinely collaborate with other physicians, including radiation oncologists and surgeons to determine the optimal treatment plan to offer the patient the best possible outcome.

Donations will provide financial support for programs such as patient education, early cancer detection, cancer registry, cancer library and support for case coordinator activities.
