Dr. A. Earle Weeks, M.D.
A special concern of Dr. Weeks is how cancer affects an entire family, not just the patient. Having practiced in the fields of Medical Oncology and Hematology for more than 20 years, Dr. Weeks is dedicated to working with cancer patients to ensure that their treatment includes services and programs that address a family’s emotional needs and help family and friends establish a community of care and support. Dr. Weeks is the married father of two teenagers and, when time permits, his extra-medical passion is running---and not just down the hospital corridors. Dr. Weeks’ goal is to run a marathon in every state in the country. And he is less than five states away from reaching this ambitious goal. Dr. Weeks is married to Dr. Melissa Hudson, a professor of Pediatric Oncology at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. She has published numerous articles mostly concerned with Hodgkin's Disease and late effects of chemotherapy.
