Great News! We will soon be launching our long-awaited program, Surviving & Thriving on Aromatase Inhibitors.
This ground-breaking program will provide information, support, and empowerment for those taking aromatase inhibitors who are experiencing the side effect of joint pain.
The Democrat & Chronicle’s Nancy O’Donnell discusses this new program in her article, New help for dealing with painful breast cancer meds:
The Breast Cancer Coalition of Rochester (BCCR) is responding to the challenge with a new pilot program, Surviving & Thriving on Aromatase Inhibitors.
The four-week wellness program… will feature education, movement and mutual support to improve drug compliance. The idea is to empower women to address side effects within a community of others facing the same challenge.
“We see that these drugs affect a large population of women,” said Holly Anderson, BCCR executive director. A significant number, some 20 to 70 percent, do not complete the treatment, and joint pain is the number one reason.”
