MRW Leadership Board

The Myra Rubenstein Weis (MRW) Leadership Board's goal is to educate and empower people to make informed decisions to prevent hereditary breast and ovarian cancers.  Funds raised through their activities support Living in the Future (LIFE) Pre-Vivor resources, including an educational workshop held for individuals diagnosed with BRCA and other breast and ovarian cancer predisposition genes.

LIFE as a PreVivor Workshop:

On April 6, 2017, a forum of NorthShore University HealthSystem medical experts addressed strategies to identify, manage, monitor and treat individuals with genetic predispositions for breast and ovarian cancer. Topics included genetic testing, screening guidelines, surgial options, chemo-prevention, and lifestyle suggestions to make life saving decisions about your health. Check back soon to view educational videos of the workshop. Learn more at the story here. For questions or more information, contact the LIFE Program at 847.926.5818.
