Cancer Care in Sandusky, Ohio

Cancer – a word no one wants to hear. Increasing number of Americans are impacted by cancer every year, either directly or by having a loved one affected by it. However, there is hope. Even though cancer is affecting more people, the advances in treatment against cancer are enabling us to increase the number of survivors.

In 2014, the number of adults and children with a history of cancer alive in the United States was almost 14.5 million. In 2024, that number is predicted to be almost 19 million. Whether you or someone you know has recently been diagnosed with cancer, the medical team at the University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center at Firelands Regional Medical Center is here for you.
