A doctor offers hope to cancer patients around the world

Dr. Anne Alaniz is a Gynecologic Oncology Fellow at WellSpan Health in York, PA. She's been practicing medicine in the US for years, but her interest in medicine began half a word away in Malawi.

She is following in the footsteps of her father, who practices medicine in Malawi. With the help of some US doctors, she moved to the US to attend medical school. But she hasn't forgotten Malawi. She is building a facility there that will specialize in caring for women and children.

She wants to find ways to give women a better quality of life after cancer, and wants to share hope that a diagnosis of cancer doesn't mean it's a death sentence.  It is rewarding for her to give women this hope and to see their eyes light up when she says, "There's something we can do for you."  Watch her inspiring story below.
