This week, The ASCO Post sat down with Dr. John Marshall, of the Lombardi Cancer Center at Georgetown University, and his wife, Liza Marshall, a former lawyer, active advocate for patients with cancer, and a breast cancer survivor.
The Marshalls are the coauthors of a new book entitled Off Our Chests: A Candid Tour Through the World of Cancer, published this week by IdeaPress Publishing and named one of the “10 Books to Read in May 2021” by The Washington Post.
Together, they discuss the impact of Liza’s breast cancer diagnosis, how it changed their view of cancer care and the way clinicians communicate, and why their book has an important message.
