“My passion is helping people. In addition to curing cancer and alleviating pain and symptoms, I feel it is my mission to try to help patients understand that cancer is not a death sentence. We have many weapons to help battle this disease and CyberKnife is one of the most powerful, often helping us manage cancer much like a chronic illness.” Dr. Mark E. Pomper
