Meet Your Medical Honoree Sarada Gurubhagavatula, MD, MPH Summit Health
Dr. Sarada Gurubhagavatula, known fondly by her patients as "Dr. G", has a special interest in lung cancer, head and neck cancer, and breast cancer, and is experienced in treating all types of hematology and oncology patients.
Lung cancer remains the leading cause of cancer deaths among women and men. Someone is diagnosed with lung cancer every two minutes and 14 seconds. 4 in 5 of those diagnosed will ultimately die of the disease.
Why We're Hopeful
More Americans than ever are surviving lung cancer. The survival rate has increased by a dramatic 13% to 22.6% in the last 5 years. Your support will help us continue the progress in our efforts to defeat lung cancer.
