An Affront to Cancer Sufferers


After nearly 40 years of attending cancer patients as a practicing oncologist, the most important lesson I learned is that patients need all the help they can get. So I'm absolutely baffled that the Minnesota Legislature would choose to increase the burden on our fellow citizens afflicted with cancer…Moreover, the moratorium effectively puts a stop to the development of additional "integrated cancer centers." This model is a one- stop shop in which all the cancer specialties are housed under one roof, as is the case at the St. Paul and Maplewood Cancer Centers, the Mayo Clinic and the University of Minnesota.
