New Light Support Group for triple negative breast cancer patients, survivors and their families, is being established with funding from the Susan G. Komen North Central Alabama Affiliate Craft Grant and led by Andres Forero, M.D., professor in the Division 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.
