We strive to provide the best care for elderly cancer patients for cure and improvement of their quality of life.
Scientific Advisory Board
We have a scientific advisory board composed of scientists, physicians of various specialty, and professionals who make recommendations on how to conduct clinical studies taking into consideration the special need of elderly cancer patients.
In addition, a patient advisory board composed of elderly cancer patients who underwent radiotherapy and their family members help us determine the best policy to help other elderly cancer patients and their family as they went through the ordeal of cancer treatment.
