    I was very surprised to get the news. Oh, boy. I've got Stage IV prostate cancer. But the question wasn't 'What is it that I have?' The question was 'What am I going to do about it?' At Weill Cornell we have a very strong program in genitourinary cancers. That includes prostate cancer, bladder cancer, kidney cancer, and testicular cancer. We also have really across the board top line medical specialties that's all here within one roof. It's very important to be connected to a hospital, such as New York Presbyterian. We have a great faculty that's at our disposal. It's a multi-disciplinary team. Not only the medical oncologists, but we also work very closely with our radiation oncology colleagues, our urology surgeons, from pathologists to radiologists. So whenever we see a new patient, we present the patient at a tumor board. And at that tumor board there's the whole gamut of physicians involved in care. What makes us unique is our dedication to research. And when I say research, not only laboratory research within the cancer center, but clinical research. We have our own clinical trials. I think the benefits from participating in clinical trials from the patient point of view is multi-factorial. Sometimes there's access to a drug that otherwise would not be available. Some of these are very promising, and we know today that there have been improvements in almost every cancer that there is through clinical trials. Some patients have the misconception that clinical trials are for the very end. That's not true. Clinical trials are for every stage or state of your cancer. One of the great things that we have at Weill Cornell is our Institute for Precision Medicine. As a team we've really been highly focused on precision medicine, and this is really an approach to try to identify which patients might respond the most effectively to the available therapies that we have. We do this by looking oftentimes at the molecular alterations in their cancers. Coming up with treatments that are targeting that defect and be able to treat patients with more personalized treatments rather than treating everyone the same. I'm not a number. I'm a person. And because of precision medicine, I'm here today.
