From diagnosis to recovery, Massey’s nurse navigators are a guiding light for patients


All of the tests, appointments and medical jargon that come with a cancer diagnosis can easily overwhelm patients — that’s where nurse navigators come in. Nurse navigation is a growing trend in cancer care, but it is rare for navigators to specialize in specific disease types. Massey has been working to build its nurse navigation program so that each major cancer type is supported by one or multiple nurse navigators — a research-backed trend among the top cancer care providers in the country.

Massey awarded American Cancer Society Institutional Research Grants for more than four decades
The latest grant, totaling $350,000 in direct costs over three years, supports early career investigators pursuing cancer research.

Mother-daughter duo make fundraising a family affair with the Massey Challenge


After their cousin Fred Glidewell was diagnosed with a stage four tumor, Kathy Galloway and daughter Izzy Selberis were determined to do what they could to support him. Inspired by Glidewell’s positive attitude in the face of aggressive treatment, Galloway and Izzy joined the Massey Challenge and started fundraising for Massey’s lifesaving cancer research.
