Because we are committed to the individual patient, we are also committed to making our service available to every cancer patient possible. We believe that tumor tissue has the power to revolutionize the evolution of cancer care. So we have dedicated ourselves to continue to search out avenues that make this a more affordable and viable option to all.
SpeciCare was born out of a physician’s desire to do more for his patients. Ken Dixon, MD, FACS, surgical oncologist practicing just north of Atlanta, was tired of telling his patients there was nothing left to do. Armed with his personal expertise, and more than 35 years experience in the healthcare industry, he set out on a journey to do more. This journey led him to tumor tissue and its power to create options that were not there before. Dr. Dixon assembled a team of the nation’s leading experts to develop a tissue storage and banking process.
“Once I realized its power, I could not believe we have just been throwing away tumor tissue for all these years.”
