Neuro-oncology patients share the challenges they face living with brain tumors and their experiences as patients at Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Cancer Center (DF/BWCC). Read more about our patients, their treatment, and remarkable progress under More Patient Stories.
During the 2012 WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon, Gorham, Maine resident Wendy O'Neil and her nurse, Debra LaFrankie, talk about Wendy's diagnosis of a glioblastoma in 2011 and her progress. LaFrankie describes the DF/BWCC staff as "committed to making care and life better for people with cancer."
During the 2012 WEEI/NESN Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon, patient Charles Benoit, his medical oncologist David Reardon, MD, and his nurse Sandra Ruland talk about the multidisciplinary team approach to treating Benoit's brain tumor. Benoit is doing so well that he volunteers with the New England Aquarium in the Rescue and Rehab department. Ruland calls Benoit a "special person" who is "gung ho and living a full life while in treatment."
