Presented by Christopher J. Moore, BS, CMD
Chief of Medical Dosimetry
MD Anderson at Cooper Cancer Center
The title of my session is “A Dosimetrist’s Sarcoma Journey”. In it, I will discuss how, after 30+ years in the field, I became a patient rather than a Cancer Healthcare Provider. A lump in my leg was diagnosed as a MyxoFibro Sarcoma. Obviously my life changed dramatically upon diagnosis. I will discuss the many facets of becoming a patient beginning with the difficult task of explaining the situation to my family, the various emotions that are unavoidable, primary treatment options, along with my own radiation treatments and surgery. I will discuss the things I learned as a patient that I had little to no knowledge about as a Dosimetrist. I am positive that every one of my colleagues has wondered how he/she would react to becoming a patient. Would you do your own plan? Would you get your treatments at the facility you work at currently? How would your co-workers handle the situation? Are there things I would want to incorporate into my own planning now that I have laid on the treatment table?
