Cancer survivors to meet April 15

The Prostate Cancer Survival Group will meet Monday, April 15, at 7 p.m. in the Mechtenberg Conference Center of Ridgecrest Regional Hospital.

Dr. Eugene Kwon of the Mayo Clinic will deliver a video program on prostate cancer imaging and subsequent metastases using C-11/Choline PET scanning. He stresses that imagery is the only significant treatment.

“His rules for engagement include aiming for curative outcomes, locating the disease in its infancy and mapping it, killing every spot of cancer and pursuing obsessive follow-up,” said a spokesperson. “Kwan discusses the strengths and weaknesses of several forms of imaging.”

For more information call Will Blackburn at 760-375-3660.
