Sample – The role of Complementary Therapies in Cancer Care with MSKCC’s Dr Barrie Cassileth
This week on Navigating the Cancer Maze Australia I am in conversation with Dr Barrie Cassileth founder the Integrative Medicine Service at the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, (MSKCC) where she remains the chief, and holds the Laurance S. Rockefeller Chair in Integrative Medicine. Dr Cassileth has been involved with the psychosocial aspects of cancer care for more than 25 years and also founded the Society for Integrative Oncology, which publishes a medical journal.
Why Innovative Oncology is an Effective Way to Tackle Cancer
I speak with Prof Brendon Coventry about melanoma and in particular, vaccines against melanoma.
But there are broader applications. Cancer Vaccines are showing up as viable treatments for other types of cancers that have failed conventional treatments such as radiation and chemotherapy protocols.

In Singapore in 2014 we recorded this very personal message to Cancer Patients from world renowned colo-rectal surgeon, Dr Francis Seow Choen in Singapore. It is worth listening to the audio below.
Dr Francis recovered from Burkitts Lymphoma when he was just 7-yrs old and decided at that stage to become a doctor to help others.

Patients & Doctors have a rare opportunity to meet… the unsung heroes driving modern cancer research and developing new treatments. (to produce a new treatment can take decades) Many will never be famous but whose cancer achievements are astounding – they include – researchers, scientists, practitioners and outstounding patients.
The show also contains information you are unlikely to get in the one place any where else – due to the diversity of interviews.
Show has been running since since Aug 2012
Be Informed – The new culture of cancer survivorship demands increasing levels of cancer health intelligence – enabling patients to understand the new game in personalized cancer treatments and make intelligent choices.
Health intelligence – The show is health intelligence in action. High quality interviews with genuine researchers and authentic patient stories. Recently – H.H. the Dalai Lama explained, that emotions based on reason and analysis, tend to drive meaningful behavior.
We know many traumatised cancer patients make emotionally based decisions which makes them vulnerable to entrepreneurs promising a miracle cure for cancer. Grace’s show gives patients an opportunity to hear from researchers whose work is found in medical papers and nowhere else. Few have a ‘Dr Google’ presence because their time & energy goes into research, developing, clinical application of treatments and not into ‘image building.’
