He later volunteered as an emergency medical technician for an ambulance that served his neighborhood.

He has also been the principal investigator on numerous trials sponsored by the pharmaceutical industry and the National Cancer Institute.
For Dr. Bradley, helping people to best of his ability is the most fulfilling part of his work. “Knowing that I’ve provided people with excellent care and support to manage the cancer and any symptoms the disease or its treatment causes is incredibly rewarding,” he says.
