The quarterly newsletter of the Indiana University Breast Cancer Program, "IUSCC PINK," made its debut in August 2006 for our patients, their families, as well as others interested in the fight against breast cancer. Our newsletter will share our thoughts both on how breast cancer is diagnosed and treated and how we are developing new treatments for the disease.
Our goal -- working with our patients -- is to render this frightening diagnosis less frightening. We'll try to present you with useful information about the disease, with links to other Web sites that have tackled many of the questions patients find troubling or confusing. We will also share with you the insights we've gained about the disease, as well as our patients' insights. We will also bring you up-to-date on new research developments, especially new clinical trials that offer our patients a chance to benefit from some of the encouraging new therapies being developed.
