Living With Cancer In Central Illinois: Seeking A Cure


Incredible advances are being made in cancer research and treatment right here in Central Illinois. To spotlight the local doctors, researchers, and institutions on the cutting edge of cancer care, WTVP and WILL are teaming up to produce a multi-platform companion to the national PBS series, Cancer: The Emperor of All Maladies.

Living with Cancer in Central Illinois centers around three half-hour broadcast programs.

“Seeking a Cure” sits down with doctors from the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Peoria—including lead researcher Dr. Marcelo B. Soares, University of Illinois, Illinois Cancer Center, OSF Saint Francis Medical Center, Carle Cancer Center and the Children’s Hospital of Illinois to learn about the progress they are making in their research, clinical trials and diagnostic tools.
