New triple-negative breast-cancer support group forming

  • September 23, 2011

The New Light Support Group for triple-negative breast-cancer patients, survivors and their families has been established with funding from the Susan G. Komen North Central Alabama Affiliate Craft Grant and led by Andres Forero, M.D., professor of hematology and oncology and senior scientist at the UAB Comprehensive Cancer Center. Triple-negative breast cancer is one of the most aggressive forms of breast cancer because tumors progress quickly.

The next meeting will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 1 at Homewood Park, 1632 Oxmoor Road, and UAB nurses Valerie Caterinicchia and Cheryl Mattrella, are the featured speakers. Registration begins at 10:30 a.m.

To RSVP, or for more information about New Light, contact Kimberly Robinson at 205-975-7912 or Lunch will be provided, but please bring lawn chairs.
