About this Blog

Cancer Matters.  Yes, it does "matter."  To you, your loved ones and all of us committed to finding better ways to detect and cure cancer.  In this blog, you'll hear from many voices on topics that "matter" to us: from the latest research through survivorship and nursing care.  We'll discuss perspectives straight from the front lines of research and patient care including scientists, physicians and patients.

"There is no more exciting time to be a part of cancer medicine than now.  There is so much we have accomplished, but we also know there is much more we can do.  We have the perfect discovery engine here and tremendous opportunities.  This is a great place to be and the right time to be here."  -William Nelson, M.D., Ph.D., director of the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins

We're writing the blueprint now for how cancer is treated in the future.  Join us in the discussion, follow our progress, and ultimately, we WILL conquer cancer.
