    Director's Message

    Mark Evers, MDKentucky now has the unfortunate distinction of being first among all 50 states in overall cancer mortality and cancer incidence (covering all cancer sites). Our cancer problem is distinct and prevalent, which underscores Markey's mission to reduce the cancer mortality in our region. Fortunately, our colleagues here are doing their part to make a difference in the lives of our patients, and many of them are going above and beyond by becoming more directly involved in communities and organizations that fight the cancer battle alongside Markey every day.
