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 currently support a new Living in the Future (LIFE) Pre-Vivor workshop. This workshop will be offered to 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 a video of the workshop. For questions or more information, contact the LIFE Program at 847.926.5818.
