DETROIT-Southeast Michigan has two new cancer centers that recently opened in the area. The Van Eslander Cancer Center in Grosse Pointe Woods opened Monday following the opening of the Lawrence and Idell Weisberg CancerTreatment Center in Farmington Hills.

“There’s nothing more frightening than hearing that you have cancer,” says Lawrence Weisberg, a donor to the project. “Everything has been designed to help remove some of that fear. It is a very soothing place.”
