An evening with Mass General Cancer Center clinicians and co-authors of Living with Cancer, Vicki A. Jackson, MD, MPH, and David P. Ryan, MD

October 12, 2017, 5:30 -7 pm, Mass General/North Shore Center for Outpatient Care, Main Lobby

Please join us for an evening with Mass General Cancer Center clinicians and co-authors of Living with Cancer, Vicki A. Jackson, MD, MPH, and David P. Ryan, MD. Drs. Jackson and Ryan will talk about their new book, Living with Cancer, which is the first step-by-step guide aimed at helping people with cancer grasp what’s happening to them while coping physically and emotionally with treatment. Based on new research and a groundbreaking program in which patients are treated with palliative care—along with the best cancer care—during the course of their illness, their honest and caring book provides the right advice to use at the right time throughout a journey with cancer. It allows a person with cancer to concentrate on living the best life possible, despite an uncertain future. Light refreshments will be provided. Seating is limited.

Please RSVP by Friday, October 6 to: Kelly Morley at kmorley@partners.org
