The February 20, 2013, issue of Time magazine includes a special cover story about health care costs by Steven Brill.  His article highlights the cancer care experiences of several individuals and includes significant discussion of the cost of cancer care.

When Sean Recchi, a 42-year-old from Lancaster, Ohio, was told last March that he had non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, his wife Stephanie knew she had to get him to MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. Stephanie’s father had been treated there 10 years earlier, and she and her family credited the doctors and nurses at MD Anderson with extending his life by at least eight years.
