Dr. Reardon details some of the reasons for Dr. Thompson’s dramatic progress in fighting brain cancer. Dr. Thompson says, "I have Dana-Farber here, and that’s a good reason to be optimistic."
Dana-Farber nurse Jenn Rifenburg talks with her patient, Allison Burke, about her cancer diagnosis, treatment, and care on the 2013 WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon. Allison found out about her brain cancer shortly after giving birth to her first child, daughter Kenna. Just three months into new motherhood, "it was pretty shocking" to receive this diagnosis, says Allison. Her nurse Jenn says, "Allison has ... the most positive attitude ... that makes a huge difference."
