Every day, cancer patients from around the world walk through the doors of The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, with one word on their mind: Hope. Hope that no matter the cancer diagnosis, they will receive the best cancer treatment available from a group of caring and compassionate staff. Hope that they will one day walk back out those doors as a cancer survivor. Statistics and rankings may tell one side of the story of a great hospital, but the real story is told by the patients that experience it firsthand. Listen as some of our patients express their feelings about MD Anderson, the treatment they received and how the employees made a difficult experience as easy and comforting as possible.
