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.

Leesa MorrisonMy goal is to support patients through their cancer journey by helping them make healthy nutritional choices and lifestyle changes. I meet with new patients during their first or second chemo treatment to get started and work with them throughout treatment, responding to concerns about appetite changes, weight loss, etc. I also meet with other patients regarding managing weight loss, improving diet, lowering blood pressure and cholesterol and making other lifestyle adaptations. My responsibilities include a healthy food demonstration twice a week and nutritional support during the weekly relaxation retreat.

I chose to work at The Ghosh Center because the philosophy that “what you eat does make a difference” was apparent in the way Dr. Ghosh and Mindy advise their patients. I believe it makes a huge difference in someone’s cancer journey when they take full advantage of nutritional guidance. I love meeting with the patients, getting to know them on a personal level and assisting them in any area that I can.

My background includes elementary education and work as a medical assistant. I enjoy walking, yard work and home projects and spending time with family – my husband and two adult children.
