Faces of Hope

Stories featuring Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center patients' strength and courage as they battled and conquered cancer.

Steve Malcolm

Lung Cancer Survivor

"Don't take any moment of life for granted," says Steve Malcolm. When Steve's family practice physician, Steven Osborn, MD, discovered a fist-sized lung tumor, Steve turned to the Methodist Lung/Thoracic Oncology Clinic, where caring and skillful specialists — including medical oncologist Stephen Lemon, MD, and cardiovascular surgeon Tracy Dorheim, MD — unite to develop individualized treatment plans. Steve's care, like that of many Methodist patients, included participation in a National Cancer Institute-approved treatment trial.

A man of deep faith and great wit, Steve calls his cancer diagnosis an answer to his prayers to break a 30-year smoking habit. Now cancer-free, Steve is an avid cyclist and non-smoking advocate enjoying his second chance at life.
