Cancer doesn't play favorites and can attack anyone at any age. Genetics play a big role in developing cancer, but they also play a role in helping treat it. Doctors at Avera are now able to target your treatment specifically to your cancer through genomic sequencing.

There’s probably nothing more frustrating to a parent than to be in a hurry to get somewhere only to have a child who melts down because his socks feel wrong. This little one would probably score high on the sensitivity temperament trait. What do you do?

The Big Grape turns Sweet 16 this year and it's going to be quite the party! The annual fundraiser helps support the Avera Children's Hospital at Avera McKennan and countless patients each year. One of those patients is Tegan Lange from Spirit Lake, Iowa who is one of the faces of this year's campaign.

Breast cancer runs in Sharon Fickbohm's family but that doesn't mean she was prepared for the results of her latest mammogram. But thanks to a new procedure, Sharon is now in remission. Single dose IOeRT is an expansion of Avera Cancer Institute’s research study that's bringing radiation therapy into the operating room.
