This content was provided by Dr. Rao I have a lot of patients who have very early stage breast cancer. And I have a number of patients who are survivors who had breast cancer years ago, as well as patients who are on active chemotherapy right now - and one day will become survivors - as well as patients who have metastatic disease and are living with this disease. You get to know a patient by knowing who's in their family, and who's in their social support networks. And I think, over time, we get to establish that relationship, not only with the patient, but with their children or their parents or their nieces and nephews - whoever accompanies them to their visits. We really take things as looking at the whole patient and looking at the different aspects of their breast cancer treatment. Between the medical oncologists, the radiation oncologists, the surgeons, and in addition we have a whole group of psychosocial oncologists in the cancer integrative medicine network to also help with that part of the patient care as well. So I think that's one of the more unique and exciting things about how we do breast cancer care here at Rush.
