With the globalization of medicine, an increasing number of patients come to the United States for medical treatment each year. H. Lee Moffitt Cancer Center & Research Institute is the only Comprehensive Cancer Center in the state of Florida designated by the National Institute of Cancer. In addition, our location and weather make us a more desirable destination for patients seeking medical care.
We understand that coming to a different country with a cancer diagnosis and facing a different culture and language can be a very difficult step to take. We are here to ease the transition.
