Health Matters: Television for Life

Cancer preview

Video duration: 0:30

Health Matters takes a big picture look from diagnosis to the latest treatments with a panel of oncologists in the three major specialties. Plus procedures that once required a trip to Seattle are now being done in Spokane. We watch Cancer Care Northwest perform its 100th stem cell transplant. And hear from a patient, two years after his lifesaving procedure.
