Dr. Eaton is also a cancer survivor and he will share his story with us at this year’s Breakfast with Friends, Cancer Lifeline’s signature fundraising event to be held on Thursday, March 28 at 7:00 am. To gain more insight into Dr. Eaton’s journey, check out this story on KCTS 9.
“Dr. Eaton’s reflective nature offers a glimpse of the difficulties he has endured as a cancer doctor and cancer patient, but always through a positive lens. He recounts that the most difficult part of his job lies in helping patients for whom there is no cure in sight. But in those circumstances, he says, ‘I can still give them something. I try to focus on trying to help people the best way I can, even if cancer will still be a part of them lifelong.’ He has always felt sympathetic for his patients, and now is able to truly be empathetic.”
