At Karmanos, there is no greater privilege than to serve our patients and their families. It’s their courageous stories of resilience, hope and generosity that resonates and connects with others dealing with their own cancer journey.

Today’s beautiful front page feature story by Detroit Free Press Columnist Kristen Jordan Shamus shares the compelling story of State Representative Andrea Schroeder of Michigan’s 43rd District and her journey with stomach cancer. She attributes the compassionate care and expertise of her medical team at Karmanos, including oncologist Philip Philip, M.D., Ph.D., F.R.C.P., her surgeon Steve Kim, M.D., and her radiation oncologist Jordan Maier, M.D., for giving her hope and encouraging her not to give up on her dreams.
