Cancer Care ... Why You Should Care About Where

After a lifetime of hard work, John Marsaln's retirement was picture perfect.  Just he and his wife.  On a bike.  Or on the beach.  And, his wife was there when he got the news.  Lung cancer.  Wrapped around an artery.  Both were devastated when it happened ... elated the moment they found out he'd be OK ... and grateful when they learned that Excela Health system ranks among the top 10% in the nation.  But here's the real headline: No one in Western PA ranks higher.*
