Shepping Nachas from my Dad

My Dad, Dr. Matthew Freedman, is a radiologist specializing in cancer researcher at Georgetown University Hospital. This week the New York Times posted a front-page article about a group research project he’s been very involved in for the last 8 years, which discovered that CT scanning can reduce lung cancer deaths among smokers by 20%!

Lung cancer causes far more deaths than any other cancer, causing an average of 157,000 deaths a year in the US. And my dad’s project is the first significant progress in detecting and fighting this deadly disease which destroys so many families.

Way to go, Dad!
