Clinical Care

Patient Testimonial: Jennifer Gilbert, Cervical Cancer

In June 2010, Jennifer Gilbert began to experience uncontrollable pain. She sought medical attention from local physicians, but after several rounds of testing, no one had an answer, until finally her gynecologist diagnosed her with cervical cancer. 

Fox Chase Cancer Center holds the National Cancer Institute’s highest designation as a Comprehensive Cancer Center

Comprehensive—meaning that it has met NCI standards for cancer prevention, clinical services and research. 

As a result, Fox Chase physicians and researchers are frequently involved in setting new guidelines for breakthrough medicine and comprehensive care.

Fox Chase  continues its 40-plus year designation as an NCI-Designated Comprehensive Cancer Center after again receiving reviews of excellent to outstanding from the NCI in 2016.
