The Stephan L. Harris Center for Chordoma Care

The Harris Center brings the Cancer Center’s multidisciplinary expertise to the evaluation, treatment, and support of chordoma patients. An advisory group bringing together specialists throughout Mass General has been established to support this goal and advance the search for a cure. “As part of that effort, we are building a chordoma care information center on our website that we hope will be a resource for patients and physicians internationally,” notes Dr. Francis Hornicek, who directs the Harris Center.

In addition, the generous donation that created the Harris Center has also  established a fund to help families receiving care at the Harris Center with transportation and housing expenses.  This assistance, notes Anne Fiore, NP, is already helping families and patients, freeing them to focus on treatment and healing. “The Harris Center is helping us extend the expert level of care available here at Mass General to chordoma patients around the world,” adds Dr. Hornicek.
