When Beverly Fairbairn was invited to join a major City of Hope study on palliative care as part of her treatment for lung cancer, she was taken aback. “Are you talking to me??” she remembers thinking. “But I feel fine right now. I'm not there yet.” Like so many others, Fairbairn assumed palliative care was little more than crisis-level pain control for patients in their final days. Fairbairn's cancer was in remission. She was healthy. The mere suggestion that she be included in the study stirred up a little paranoia: “Do they know something I don't?” she wondered.
Breast cancer is more than a physical disease. It permeates a woman’s emotional, social and spiritual well-being. Here are some tips – from City of Hope’s “Return to Wellness” program – to help women regain a feeling of control.

City of Hope scientists and doctors are on the forefront in the fight against breast cancer, conducting research that will ultimately result in less invasive and more effective treatments for women worldwide.
