Dr. David Palma, Radiation Oncologist at London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) and Scientist at Lawson Health Research Institute, is a strong advocate for cancer patients getting the high-quality care they deserve.

His new book, Taking Charge of Cancer: What You Need to Know to Get the Best Treatment, is the first “how-to” manual that shows patients how to obtain and understand their medical records, double-check their doctors’ recommendations and ensure they are getting top-notch radiation, surgery or chemotherapy.

All royalties are being donated to London Health Sciences Foundation’s Cancer Care Campaign, which will help to support cancer research at Lawson.
