Cancer, the big C. 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 take you behind closed doors as Cancer Care Northwest performs its 100th stem cell transplant. And hear from a patient, two years after his lifesaving procedure. From more common cancers to those difficult to diagnose our panel takes your calls.

  • Hakan Kaya, M.D. Cancer Care Northwest
  • Nicole Manus, Livestrong at the YMCA Program Coordinator
  • Lance Griffith, M.D., Spokane Radiation Oncology Associates and Providence Regional Cancer Center
