Jeff Allen, president and CEO of Friends of Cancer Research, shares what he hopes continuing advancements and the Cancer Moonshot will achieve in cancer care.
Allen expressed that one day he hopes that cancer treatments become more widely available for people. This includes getting them on to the marker earlier by speeding up the development process, as well as knocking down any health and geographic barriers that can create health disparities.
He also mentioned the need to address the challenges of long-term cancer treatment and letting the patients play a key role in their treatment decision making. To do this, it is important that there are resources to help them make informed decisions.
