“I think leading cancer care is a commitment, and with commitment you promise that you will do the hard work. To ‘lead cancer care’ is not a simple statement. It involves responsibility. It involves dedication, and it involves a promise that I will always stay ahead of the game. That’s what I want everyone to know.”
