Queen,
Your Family Friendly Cancer Doc!

Teaching is my passion. Since 2004 I have mentored teenagers, taught about cancer basics to lay-persons, church members, medical students, residents and non-oncology medical staff. Yes, of course, patients too. You can learn as well – It’s been Simplified!

 

Greetings and thank you for stopping by! I am a board certified Oncologist (Cancer Doctor) who, like many of my colleagues, take fighting cancer very, very seriously.

These blogs will be an added value benefit to cover the other cancers for which packages may not be readily available. Our Forum for Women Cancer Survivors is also an exciting addition. I hope you will become a part of our family. Again, thank you for stopping by and God’s speed on your journey!

Remember …

Ipsa Scientia Potestas est    ———  Knowledge itself is power!
