Meet The Cancer Experts: Dr. Lillian Siu

Meet Dr. Lillian Siu. In her own words:

I remember when I was training here as a young oncologist, there was a young patient who had testicular cancer, who has a curable cancer. And unfortunately, he had a cancer that was not curable.

And despite, you know, the various treatments he was given, he still could not survive this disease.

But he had a really, really positive attitude that whatever time he had, he enjoyed. And I think as an oncologist, I learned a lot from him and understood a lot more about how to handle the last few days and months of your life. And to have the attitude like that at such a young age…it made a significant impact on me as an oncologist.
