Cancer Guidelines: Excuse Me While I Whip This Out
Throughout the history of cancer advocacy, there the advocates who made us and the organizations who made us. And one such organization is the National Comprehensive Cancer Network, which is — for all intents and purposes — the “Good Housekeeping meets Consumer Reports” of all cancer standards of care, best practices, guidelines, and credibility consensus. Joining me on today’s show to speak to all that is my friend Marcie Reeder, Executive Director of the NCCN Foundation, which is their patient-friendly arm that collaborates with scores of nonprofits to make sure their information is trickled down to the patient and caregiver community as a vital support resource. Marcie lost her father to esophageal cancer when she was young. Her public service to advance the narrative and the imperative of access, awareness, and survivorship is a testimony to her passion and character and the very definition of cancer advocacy. NCCN is an incredible organization that does outstanding work on behalf of millions of people, and I hope this episode shines a light on their impact in the cancer community. Enjoy the show.
