For breast cancer care, Barb chose the team approach

Barb Miller didn't think her breast cancer diagnosis was routine or ordinary, so she didn't want her care to be routine or ordinary, either. At Holden Comprehensive Cancer Center-Iowa's only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center-cancer experts work in teams called multidisciplinary oncology groups.
