Making Progress Against Cancer
Partners on the Journey

Over the last few years, I’ve had the great privilege of visiting a variety of NCI-designated Cancer Centers and talking with various stakeholder groups across the country.

Cancer is Only the Beginning
Surviving the Cure,
Choosing to Live

by Andrew Bundy

I guess you could say I was lucky – leukemia wasn’t too bad for me. I mean, sure, at the time, it was horrible, the worst thing I thought any­one could go through. But four rounds of chemotherapy, a bone marrow trans­plant, and six months later, I was in remission and already thinking about joining my high school friends in col­lege, although I’d be a freshman, and they’d be sophomores.
