We all dream of a world without cancer.

Yet, one in two men and one in three women will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetimes. And even more alarming, each person’s cancer is unique...there are no routine cancers, and there will be no one-size-fits-all way to prevent, detect, treat and cure. So, how do we make any progress toward that vision of a world free from this disease?
“Toward a Cancer-free World” is a new segment featuring the world-renowned experts at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC-James). Each week, 10TV Anchor Tracy Townsend and OSUCCC-James CEO/Director Dr. Mike Caligiuri will explore the latest discoveries to prevent, detect, treat and cure cancer. Together, they’ll share some of the world’s leading-edge research — all going on right here at The James. The latest in cancer-fighting foods, how who you are influences what cancers you’re most vulnerable to developing, the development of “smart drugs” that are designed to target your unique cancer cells, the latest in skin cancer-detecting technologies, the top three most promising research studies going on right now in cancer labs, and much more — you’ll meet the researchers and cancer physicians behind the discoveries and the patients who dream everyday of a world without this disease.

But beyond just informing you, we want to engage you. We want to empower you to help yourself, your mom, dad, husband, wife, child not become another cancer patient. And, if you’re a cancer survivor, we want to help you live disease-free and connect you with communities of cancer survivors. Equally as important, we want to arm you with options for action. If you ever wished you could do more to fight this disease, our weekly segments, quarterly newsletters, website and social community will provide you with ways to help reach our shared goal.
