Opening of Cancer Center of Gaithersburg

They say that cancer is a word, not a sentence. And that’s because of places like the Cancer Center at Gaithersburg, where I had the opportunity to participate in today’s ribbon cutting ceremony.

You may be aware that the Upcounty has seen a 20% increase in population since the year 2000, according to Census data. Germantown and Clarksburg, the County’s two fastest growing communities, account for most of the population growth. That’s why I am so pleased to see this facility opening in the northern part of the county. We really need it.

Now our Upcounty residents will have access to the same cutting-edge technology available at Johns Hopkins. And it is not just the technologies that will be great for our residents, but they will get resources on cancer treatments and side effects as well as an environment that promotes comfort and peace of mind.
