UPMC CancerCenter. Centered on cancer. Focused on you.
There’s no question — a cancer diagnosis can be frightening. And dealing with the psychological aspects of the diagnosis are just as important as treating the cancer itself.
After a cancer diagnosis, you can continue living life to the fullest. UMPC CancerCenter can help you on your journey. It covers all bases: Offering patients the latest advances in cancer prevention, detection, diagnosis and treatment. Additionally, UPMC CancerCenter uses integrative oncology to help cancer patients: modalities that include yoga, meditation, therapeutic massage, and more.
Dr. Lanie Francis, Medical Oncologist and Director of the Integrative Oncology Program at UPMC CancerCenter, joins us to explain how (through research and continued innovation in cancer treatments) there is more hope now than ever before.
On this episode, Beth Troutman tells her story; Christina Nicholson embarks on an adventure to Orlando with her family; and former football player Marc Bouniconti shares his journey.
Three decades later, Marc Buoniconti, a quadriplegic, visits The Balancing Act to talk about his life, his mission, and his goal to one day walk again.
The Balancing Act's host Christina Nicholson and her family are embarking on a fun-filled vacation to Orlando, Fla., also known as the "theme park capital of the world."
