February 26, 2009

On Thursday, March 5th, Penn State Hershey Cancer Institute, Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center will partner with WHTM – abc27, Harrisburg, for "Cancer: Conquering the Enemy Within," a 30-minute, live television special. The show airs at 7:30 p.m. and will include three inspirational cancer survivor success stories — a breast cancer patient who never thought she was at risk, a prostate cancer patient who only discovered his cancer through a routine check-up, and a leukemia patient diagnosed during pregnancy – after delivering a healthy daughter, she has since given birth to triplets.

The show features three Cancer Institute physicians and a cancer researcher and focuses on medical advancements, treatment options, and research available to patients right here in south central Pennsylvania. A panel of six Cancer Institute experts also will be in the studio to answer callers’ questions.
