Sanford Health’s Roger Maris Cancer Center’s accreditations continue to grow.
Comprised of six highly trained cancer registrars, and a dedicated Office Specialist, Sanford's Cancer Registry maintains timely, accurate and complete data on all types of cancer diagnosed and/or treated at Roger Maris Cancer Center. The registry also tracks patient care, long-term survival and quality of life.
You are a survivor the day you are diagnosed with cancer. Family and friends that share in the journey are also considered survivors because of the enormous impact this has on them.
Lung cancer, the leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S., continues to be one of the most difficult cancers to treat. Roger Maris Cancer Center has taken several steps to improve lung cancer care:

- The availability of Brachymesh™
- Cancer Nurse Navigator for patients with lung cancer
- A vibrant, user-friendly smoking cessation program
