What Cancer Treatment Centers of America are doing for the Global Community
Cancer is an illness that has ravaged the global community for centuries. Previous research shows that cancer might have also affected the first human inhabitants of the world. Due to lack of an adequate cure for the illness, most of us have ended up getting either directly or indirectly affected by the ailment. For decades, scientists around the world have been trying all they can to find a cure for cancer, with chemotherapy being the only breakthrough of this generation.
As stated on WebMD, at the Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is another breed of scientists that have come to find a definite cure to the ailment. If their efforts pay off, the global community will be the immediate beneficiary. Since its inception in 1988, the organization has been working hand in hand with five hospitals in the United States of America to help alleviate the plight of cancer patients. Unlike other facilities that fight cancer in the world, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America have resulted to doing follow-ups on previous patients and offering them with therapies meant to reduce pain, nausea, depression, anxiety, fatigue, malnutrition, and lymphedema that come with cancer treatment. So far, CTCA has branches in Tulsa, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Atlanta. By using the latest technology, cancer experts at CTCA are optimistic about finding a reliable cure sooner than later.
2017 has been a good year for CTCA. It is only recently that the organization joined hands with Allscripts as well as NanthHealth so as to bring to a realization the custom oncology treatment platform. The platform will help cancer experts keep in touch with the ever changing cancer information thus making it easier for a medical breakthrough soon. Hence, it is only a matter of time before scientist from CTCA come up with a cure for all cancer strains.
