EDWARDS, Colorado The Shaw Regional Cancer Center has established the Hereditary Cancer Program, with a full array of hereditary-cancer counseling services, and has hired a full-time counselor for the program. Melanie Taylor has joined the Shaw Center to run the program.The program includes evaluating people with a personal and/or family history of cancer to determine if a hereditary predisposition for cancer exists. Hereditary evaluations involve getting detailed family and individual medical histories, looking at incidences and types of cancers that have occurred within a family. We may also coordinate genetic testing if its warranted, Taylor said. If we do find a hereditary predisposition for cancer, then well sit down with the person and discuss options for managing that risk. Those options can include increased screening and preventative surgical or drug treatments with referrals to appropriate health care providers.Taylor, who has a degree in genetic counseling from the University of Colorados Health Sciences Center, has been involved in the field for more than five years. She most recently had her own practice, providing counseling services to a number of cancer centers in the state. She has extensive experience in clinical, prenatal, pediatric and cancer genetics.For more information about the Shaw Regional Cancer Center and the Hereditary Cancer Program, call 569-7429 or visit http://www.shawcancercenter.com.
