Cancer Registry Fact: With cancer registries, doctors can tell cancer patients how long people with a certain type of cancer tend to live after diagnosis and if they may qualify for clinical trials.
Cassie has worked in healthcare for over 17 years but always had a special interest in oncology. She started working in the cancer registry profession six years ago. She was initially intrigued to learn about how many types of cancers existed in the world. She then decided to become a CTR to learn more about how cancer was treated and how she could play a valuable role in providing a cure one day.
