Paul S. Falkowski discusses Integrated Health at MUSC Hollings Cancer Center
Paul S. Falkowski is enthusiastically involved with the Integrated Health program at Medical University of South Carolina’s (MUSC) Hollings Cancer Center in Charleston, SC. He stresses that this program addresses the “look and feel good” part of going through cancer treatment. External image, how we feel about ourselves, is an extremely important part of our self-esteem. Many times cancer patients lose sight of this while they undergo treatment. MUSC Hollings Cancer Center is there to address these intrinsic needs. Falkowski states that simple things like prosthetics, wigs, and massage therapy can make a world of difference to patients. Feeling good about yourself and adopting a healthy lifestyle is part of a multidisciplinary approach to change the face of cancer.
Team Draft was founded by Chris Draft, former NFL player, and his wife, Keasha, whose life was sadly cut short by lung cancer in December 2011. Their goal was to inspire patients to hope and to provide them with information on the multitude of programs available to help them in their fight. The foundation is dedicated to raising lung cancer awareness and securing funds desperately needed for research. Programs like the one at MUSC give patients hope and are a vital part of cancer treatment. Team Draft’s visit to MUSC was part of an extensive National Campaign public awareness campaign to visit cancer research and treatment facilities working diligently to prevent and treat lung cancer.
