When patients come first, they live longer, fuller lives. Our five-year survival rate for patients with metastatic cancer is nearly five times greater than the national rate. See the data and learn what the gift of more time means to the people we care for.

Christine Wilhelm

Christine WilhelmI love working with oncology patients, who hold a special place in my heart as my father had cancer in 2009. Putting patients first and making a difference in their lives are high priorities for me. I enjoy communicating with the people we serve and helping them through a difficult time in their lives. If I can make one person smile or laugh in a day, it makes my day better.

Before joining The Ghosh Center, I worked in Neuro Oncology for 16 years at St. Luke’s. I’ve also done pediatric home care and worked in care facilities. I have an associate’s degree from Kirkwood Community College, am oncology-certified and a CPR instructor.

My husband Scott and I have two children, Cynthia and Brandon; four grandsons, Isaak, Nathan, Levi and Jackson; and my beagle, Lil Bill.  At home, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, being outside, baking and doing crafts.
