National Cancer Survivors Day

We caught up with Dr. Jennifer Hydeman from Roswell Park for some helpful tips, and two cancer survivors, Cheryl Reinhardt and Mary Ellen Rickard, to hear their stories of survival. Each suggests regular screening for the disease, suggesting that if something feels wrong in your arm, leg, chest or anywhere on your body – have it checked out!
