How do patients really feel when they are in your care? What does it feel like to cure a cancer? How are the children of oncologists affected when grief is a parent’s occupational hazard? These are the personal topics explored in the candid and inspirational mini-podcast series, Your Stories: Conquering Cancer.
Listen now to “The Path to a Cure,” the third release from Your Stories: Conquering Cancer.
Lawrence Einhorn, MD, FASCO, wanted to practice general medicine alongside the father he revered. Life interfered with that dream, but along the way, he discovered a cure for testicular cancer.
In 1974, patients facing a disease with a then 5% cure rate followed the lead of an ambitious but humble young scientist who had developed a groundbreaking chemotherapy regimen. Dr. Einhorn, a Conquer Cancer Foundation Board member and donor, speaks with friend and colleague Patrick Loehrer, MD, FASCO, about his “walk on the moon” that outsmarted what was once the deadliest form of cancer for men.
