Today’s guest blog, on World Cancer Day, comes from Lilly’s senior vice president and president of Lilly Oncology, Sue Mahony, Ph.D.
Imagine you’re a young woman who has just been diagnosed with cancer. Your mind rushes to the impact on your children, your husband. For them, you know you will fight to survive. You will request a second opinion. You will ask friends and co-workers for recommendations for the best oncologist. You will research online to find a premier cancer treatment facility. You will demand the best medicines available.
