Cancer has traditionally been treated with some combination of radiation and chemotherapy. But these treatments, which often cause pain and take a great deal of time to complete, don't necessarily increase the quality of a patient's remaining years.

But new treatments are emerging that approach cancer in different ways, and Granite Geek David Brooks is here to discuss them.

Listen to the conversation:

The Granite Geek will be hosting a discussion about new cancer treatments on Tuesday evening, October 17th, at The Draft in Concord. Click here for details.
