Surviving With Incurable Breast Cancer
This week I sat down with breast cancer specialist, Dr. Amelia Zelnak, of Atlanta Cancer Care. We talked about patients dealing with incurable breast cancer or they have a malignant recurrence. Pfizer, maker of several medications used to treat various cancers, have launched an initiative, “Breast Cancer: A Story Half Told”.
This effort aims to expand the breast cancer conversation on multiple fronts. As the website states, “Earlier this year, Pfizer unveiled the results of two complementary studies that uncovered gaps in the breast cancer conversation within society at large and between patients and physicians in the doctor’s office, and along with leaders in the breast cancer community issued a public call-to-action to expand the breast cancer dialogue to include metastatic disease. Breast Cancer: A Story Half Told – Supporting Workplace Conversations aims to identify gaps in the current conversation about breast cancer and the workplace, and encourage healthcare professionals and employers to join together with women with breast cancer to better address their unique workplace needs.”
We talk about this and more. Check back soon for more info!
