This year we will explore the latest research in the medical management of metastatic breast cancer; nutritional strategies and the psychosocial needs when facing an advanced breast cancer diagnosis. While extensive support and information networks are in place for those with primary breast cancer, it is more difficult for those with metastatic disease to find the resources they need. Those living with advanced disease face different challenges than those with early breast cancer diagnoses. This annual seminar hopes to address some of these concerns.
Family, friends, caregivers and care providers are also invited. Contact us for more information.
Support for this program is being provided by M & T Bank in memory of their friend and employee Cindy L. Dertinger, who died of metastatic breast cancer in March 2003.
