Cancer Today Summer Issue Addresses Diabetes-Cancer Comorbidity and Spirituality in Cancer Treatment


PHILADELPHIA — The Summer 2014 issue of Cancer Today, a publication of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), features stories on the challenge of facing both cancer and diabetes, incorporating spirituality into cancer patients’ care, and how Ed Bradley of 60 Minutes faced leukemia.

Published quarterly by the AACR, Cancer Today is an authoritative resource for cancer patients, survivors, and their family members and friends. In every issue, Cancer Today offers information and inspiration to help readers face the challenges of diagnosis, treatment, survivorship, and caregiving.

This issue of Cancer Today includes “Cancer and Diabetes: A Balancing Act.” People with type 2 diabetes are at greater risk for being diagnosed with cancer, and having both conditions complicates treatment for each one. “A New Look at Spirituality” shows how caring for cancer patients’ spiritual needs is playing a greater role in treatment. “Shining a Light” reviews Ed Bradley’s life and the leukemia that he kept largely private.

Also, Cancer Today tells the story of John and Pat Curry, who opened a coffee shop in Augusta, Georgia, in the midst of John’s colorectal cancer diagnosis and treatment.

Cancer Today also publishes a free monthly e-newsletter, which contains links to web exclusives, information about events and resources, and highlights from new issues.
