October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. The American Cancer Society estimates that more than 230,000 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer this year, and there are currently 2.5 million breast cancer survivors living in the US.
The recurring questions we all have about breast cancer remain focused on new insight about breast cancer’s causes, the current state of viable treatment options, and the progress made in discovering a cure.
Tomorrow, 92nd Street Y will host Dr. Larry Norton, deputy physician-in-chief of Memorial Hospital and the medical director of the Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center, for the 19th year to discuss what we know to date regarding breast cancer.
Listen to a podcast of Dr. Norton’s appearance last week at the Joan Hamburg radio show on WOR where he discussed developments in breast cancer research and answered questions from listeners.
