I would like to ask your help in publicizing our Oct. 13 conference in Chicago for people with metastatic breast cancer. It’s a couple weeks after the Lynn Sage Town Hall Meeting, which from my experience, does not get into mets too much.

Sandi, you are most welcome to join us!!

[Please note there is a $35 registration fee to cover the cost of a Friday night reception and as well as meals and a Saturday reception.]

The Oct. 13 conference in Chicago for people with metastatic breast cancer is at Northwestern’s Lurie Center and features some expert oncologists from Northwestern as well as several other leading institutions.
