Craig Lustig, MPA, emphasizes the importance of treating each patient with cancer as a unique individual, taking into account both the unique characteristics of their tumor and their individual needs and circumstances.
Lustig shares his personal experience of being treated for a brain tumor as a young adult and a gay man, highlights the importance of creating a safe and welcoming environment for patients to share their concerns and priorities, and encourages patients to self-advocate and be active participants in their own care.
