Cancer 'Moon Shot'

Featured Audio

Vice President Joe Biden is in charge of what is being dubbed a "cancer moon shot" program.  The goal: to end cancer as we know it.  But here's the problem with cancer:  we're not searching for one cure.  We're searching for more than a hundred.
Cleveland is home to some of the best researchers in the world who are already working to end cancer.  We'll hear about the work  taking place on several fronts from the two top cancer experts in Cleveland and what this new galvanized effort to ramp up cancer research means for all of us.

Guests: 

Dr. Brian Bolwell, MD, Chairman Cleveland Clinic Taussig Cancer Institute  
Dr. Stan Gerson, MD, Director Case Comprehensive Cancer Center and UH Seidman Cancer Center 
Wendy Hoke, Vice President, Marketing and Communications St. Vincent Charity Medical Center  
Dr. Keith Klafehn, Professor Emeritus, author, "It Was a Privilege to Care for Her"
