The Many Faces of Breast Cancer
The American Cancer Society estimates that, in Massachusetts, more than 5,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2010 alone. While it is important to educate women about early diagnosis and treatment, there are few resources and programs that specifically address the unique needs and issues facing women with advanced and metastatic breast cancer.
On Wednesday Oct. 13 at 6:30 p.m., join BIDMC, the American Cancer Society, Susan G. Komen for a Cure, Massachusetts, Facing Cancer Together, and The Wellness Community - Massachusetts South Shore for The Many Faces of Breast Cancer in Boston, a free educational event for women living with advanced and metastatic breast cancer.
BIDMC panelists scheduled to speak include: Dianne Holland-Sullivan, Senior Oncology Nurse; Hester Hill Schnipper, Chief of Oncology Social Work; and Dr. Lowell E. Schnipper, Chief, of BIDMC's Division of Hematology and Oncology.
They will address treatment options, psychosocial support, nutrition and diet, symptom management, and the latest in breast cancer research.
