People v. Cancer

What does it mean to live with cancer today?

How has the global pandemic affected cancer care? And how do we lead with empathy and compassion to ensure that the treatment is right for the patient?

As part of the People v. Cancer series, The Atlantic illuminated stories from the frontlines of the cancer community, confronting two challenges this fall — cancer and COVID. We explored the latest science and the power of the human experience.
