“Time is of the essence. You can’t waste time living in denial or shame or abdicating responsibility. Nothing is necessarily a death sentence"
(PRWEB) September 22, 2016
Because all lung cancer tumors are distinct and unique, there is a continuous challenge among scientists to develop treatments for the disease. Personalized medicine helps doctors to identify the best sequence or combination of groundbreaking therapies in order to help patients create personalized treatment plans. Yet despite these game-changing advances, the rate of death from the disease has barely changed. Only with a major increase in funding for research and awareness initiatives can we eliminate lung cancer, America’s leading cancer killer.
Gracing the cover o the print edition is Tony Goldwyn, star of “Scandal.” In an exclusive interview with Mediaplanet, he shares his personal experiences with cancer within his family and how he inspires others to learn from his story. “[When you’re diagnosed], you feel so helpless and the c-word is so overwhelming,” he says. “The treatments now are making lung cancer less of a death sentence. People need to take responsibility for their own health and look at their options. Get as much information and options as you can.”
Goldwyn concludes by encouraging others to take a proactive approach to lung cancer. “Time is of the essence. You can’t waste time living in denial or shame or abdicating responsibility. Nothing is necessarily a death sentence,” he adds. “The world is changing very rapidly.”
