Motherhood Talk Radio Hosted by Sandra Beck Welcomes the Cancer Treatment Centers of America Tuesday Sept. 11

Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is a growing network of privately held hospitals that provide a comprehensive, fully integrated and individualized cancer treatment experience. CTCA regional destination hospitals are located in Atlanta, Chicago, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Tulsa. The CTCA growth goal is to reach more cancer patients by offering six regional hospitals located within 300 miles of approximately 80 percent of the U.S. population.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America was founded in 1988 by Richard J Stephenson. Stephenson was disappointed with the impersonal and insensitive cancer care his mother, Mary Brown Stephenson, received. When she lost her battle with cancer in 1982, Stephenson set out to change the face of cancer care. Stephenson’s commitment to creating a truly patient-centered cancer treatment experience has been the organization’s guiding principle ever since.

The Mother Standard®
CTCA promises that the treatment, quality of life and service needs of every patient will be at the center of the hearts, minds and actions of its staff every day. At CTCA, patients find accomplished physicians who specialize in caring for people living with advanced and complex cancer, along with experienced nutritionists, naturopathic doctors, mind-body therapists, spiritual counselors and other clinicians who provide quality-of-life support. Collectively they work to address the individual needs of patients, as if each patient was his or her own mother or loved one. They ask themselves: “If my mother had cancer, how would I want her to be treated?” That simple question has evolved into the CTCA Mother Standardof care, a unique, vibrant approach that delivers a complete, quality treatment experience based on what cancer patients and their families value most.

The Mother Standard of care allows CTCA clinicians to offer cancer patients the latest, evidence-based treatments to fight cancer, combined with a comprehensive array of scientifically supported complementary medical therapies to strengthen the immune system, ease side effects and improve quality of life.

Motherhood Talk Radio Continues its Women’s Health Series with Cancer Survivors Mary-Ann Sullivan and Tracie Kimbrough, ACS volunteer

Motherhood Talk Radio hosted by Sandra Beck welcomes series contributor Robin Boyd, continuing their Women’s Health series today focusing on Living With and Surviving Cancer.

“My name is Mary-Ann Sullivan.  I’m very grateful to wake up every day on the “right side of the grass”. I am 57 years old and have only taught military children for my almost 35 years as a teacher. I have had the great fortune of teaching across the United States, accompanying my husband as he proudly served our military as a navigator for the Air Force. I am a strong supporter of our military personnel and their families, and focus much of my volunteer time on Veterans. I was initially diagnosed in 1998 and have since battled metastatic breast cancer to my lungs and my brain. When I was first diagnosed, my son was 12 and my daughter was 17. Last year, I tested positive for the BRCA gene and made the decision to have a double mastectomy with reconstruction. Through all of this my family and friends have been a great source of support and comfort. Basically, I owe my life to Massachusetts General Hospital and my faith in God.”

Tracie Kimbrough is a breast cancer survivor, single mom, and a volunteer with the American Cancer Society.  Tracie has volunteered since 2008 as a Reach To Recovery Volunteer, and is also the event chair for Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of San Fernando Valley.

The American Cancer Society is a nationwide, community-based voluntary health organization dedicated to eliminating cancer as a major health problem. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, the ACS has 12 chartered Divisions, more than 900 local offices nationwide, and a presence in more than 5,100 communities.  Resources are available to anyone needing support and guidance during their difficult journey.
