What Is Cancer?

Cancer affects us on more than a physical level. It affects us to the core of our humanity.

At Sarcoma Warriors, we’ve found that more complicated questions—ones that deal with the spiritual or social side of a cancer diagnosis—outrank a simpler question: What is cancer? Often, patients and their loved ones find the answer to this question well into treatment.

Dr. Scott Porter, surgeon and president of Sarcoma Warriors, helped us make a simple yet informative look at what causes cancer in the body.
