About this Article

Paul and Evelyn Weber of Mattoon are both cancer survivors. They know first-hand that the best treatment plan for each case is imperative for survival of the disease. As a former nurse who was diagnosed in 2002 with breast cancer, Mrs. Weber said when her husband was found to have acute myeloid leukemia in 2006, she thought, "not again." She said in comparison, his treatment was far more intense than hers.
