This is a place where anyone who counts themselves as a member of the Mass General Cancer Center community: patient, family member, physician, nurse, researcher, social worker, care giver, administrator can come to read, think, and write about the words we all use, but which we don’t always understand in the same way. Often we use words and phrases that are common, that we use every day. Yet, their very familiarity creates the illusion of common understanding where, the fact is, we are frequently using these words in radically different ways, with radically different meanings. In our small way, WWTA is meant to help us work toward a common language and make the conversations we have about cancer more meaningful.
