What Women and Men Need to Know about Breast Cancer
October 10, 2013
Hosted by Chris Efessiou
October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Breast cancer does not discriminate between women or men. Each person's diagnosis is as distinct as the person it affects. Who is at risk and at what age is the greatest incidence. Early detection can be life saving. What are the latest innovations in this arena? The publicity of Angelina Jolie’s double mastectomy has sparked international debate, and brought to light the BRCA1 gene. Should testing for BRCA1 be the standard? There are many ways in which you can make a difference in the early detection and search for a cure. Two missions making a difference are Cups Full of Hope and Tigerlily Foundation’s EmPOWER Ball. Join Dr. Feldman and Cynthia de Lorenzi Thursday, October 10, at 3 PM PT–6 PM ET
