Everyday Amazing

There are really two ideas driving our “Everyday Amazing” theme. The first – that every single day is truly a gift and that even the seemingly mundane tasks of daily life can take on extra significance if we slow down and appreciate them. The second – that every single day here at the Mass General Cancer Center we all (from patients to healthcare professionals to staff) have the chance, together, to do something pretty amazing.

Sometimes that amazing thing is innovative technology like the proton beam or targeted therapies … but sometimes that amazing thing is as simple as a warm word or a helping hand. Ultimately, that’s why we are all here: to make sure that amazing happens every day.
