During spring training 2018, MD Anderson Cancer Center has been on site at FITTEAM Ballpark of the Palm Beaches to raise awareness about sun safety, cancer prevention and healthy living. MD Anderson is providing free skin cancer screenings to spring training attendees, along with sunscreen and lip balm to help attendees protect their skin from the harmful effects of UV rays.
At MD Anderson, we understand how hard it can be to choose a hospital for cancer treatment. Listen to these MD Anderson patients as they describe their diagnosis and treatment, and why ultimately they chose MD Anderson for our leading expertise, cutting-edge research, and patient support and education.
Prevention is a cornerstone of MD Anderson’s approach to eliminating cancer. You can reduce your risk and your family’s risk for cancer by making healthy lifestyle choices, getting screened and vaccinating your children.
"Hold on. Be strong. Can you feel it getting better?"
These words are the chorus of the original song "Hold On, " written and performed by Greg Lizee, Ph.D., associate professor in MD Anderson's Melanoma Medical Oncology department. The song's message is simple: Hope. It's about positivity, patience and faith -- faith that things will get better. You have to hold on through the bad times to reach the good.
