FCCT in “Cancer Care Today”

We got a great write-up in Minnesota Oncology’s “Cancer Care Today”! Here’s an excerpt:

“In the shadow of majestic Mount Kilimanjaro in the land of the Serengeti, a dedicated group of oncology physicians, educators and business leaders is working to build the first freestanding cancer center in Moshi, Tanzania, East Africa.”

One might wonder why we should care about cancer care in far-away East Africa. However, it behooves us to remember that in the 21st-century world of high-speed travel, the issue of health care and disease management in Tanania and other developing regions of our shrinking global village can have a lasting worldwide impact. Of the 7 million cancer deaths worldwide each year, fully 70 percent occur in developing countries.”
