Breast CancerStreaming Video - 2008
Without question, breast cancer is the disease many women fear the most-not only because of the disease, but also because of what treatment involves. However, as this program illustrates, dramatic differences exist between today's breast cancer therapies and the way the illness was treated a generation ago. Women with breast cancer detail their experiences with this disease, their reactions to the diagnosis, and the treatments that saved their lives. They also offer advice to other women about how to emotionally survive the breast cancer experience. Experts include Dr. Edith Perez of the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, and Dr. Dennis Slamon of UCLA's Jonsson Comprehensive Cancer Center.
