Telling her two daughters that she had been diagnosed with endometrial cancer (cancer of the lining of the uterus) was hard for Brooklyn, NY, minister Alice Edwards. But her prayers for a compassionate doctor were answered when the family called the Physician Referral Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and found Carol Brown, a gynecologic oncologist and surgeon. Edwards underwent a course of treatment that included surgery, chemotherapy, and radiation quite beautifully, Brown says admiringly.
