Richard J. Stephenson, the founder of Cancer Treatment Centers of America, established the center after the death of his mother who had cancer. Richard felt the need to offer more treatment options since he was not contented with the therapies, which were provided, to his mother. In 1988, he initiated the first center, followed by others, which were established, between 2005 and 2012.
