Dr. Katisha Vance

Dr. Vance on her inspiration for becoming a physician and her motivation to work with cancer patients:

“In August 1986, Mattie Stinson died at the age of 64 from complications of metastatic colorectal cancer.  Mattie was my maternal grandmother.  Back then, treatment options were limited for patients with stage IV disease.  Today, we have an ever-increasing number of therapies to help patients in the fight of their lives.  Why am I motivated to come to work everyday?  To help someone else’s Mattie.”
