As people grow older, the likelihood of getting a cancer diagnosis increases, but there is no one standard treatment for older patients. Beverly Barr Vaughan was diagnosed and treated for colon cancer at the age of 77. Follow this passionate discussion as Beverly and the experts delve into the issue of chronological age versus physiological age. Second Opinion: Geriatric Oncology airs Friday, February 8, 2013 at 10 p.m. on WXXI-TV/HD (DT21.1/cable 11 and 1011).
