Make No Small Plans: M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Endeavors to Make Cancer History
Date:5/8/2009

ent Egyptian and Greek medicine and the modern advances that comprise the oncology field as it is known today.

Due to these early contributions and huge leaps in the understanding of cancer made by M. D. Anderson and its peer institutions over the decades, the five-year survival rate for all forms of cancer combined has risen to 66 percent, more than double what it was 50 years ago. An American diagnosed with cancer today is very likely to join the growing ranks of survivors. Even when not curable, more cancers are managed as effectively as other chronic, life-long diseases.

"I am fortunate that my life and career have spanned many of the major medical, technological and research developments presented in Making Cancer History," said John Mendelsohn, M. D., president of M. D. Anderson. "With remarkable truth and clarity, Jim has captured the stubborn spirit, heroic attempts, colossal setbacks and glittering achievements we have faced - as a nation and an institution - in cancer care and research. This is no dry institutional history, but a record of the will and courage to confront and conquer cancer."

From the Wild West to the Pink Palace

From radical surgery, the ability to harness the force of radiation to kill disease and the dawning of the age of chemotherapy up to the discovery of DNA and immunology, Olson explores the evolution of cancer treatment parallel to M. D. Anderson's own quest to bring scientific discoveries to the clinic as rapidly as possible.

Founded as the anchor of the now-renowned Texas Medical Center, the largest of its kind in the world, Olson credits its three presidents with forging M. D. Anderson's distinctive culture, ability to attract world-class specialists, commitment to innovation, multidisciplinary approach to patient care and leadership role in national policy.
