A Word From The President
Welcome to the second annual Breast Cancer Symposium. It is exciting to see the new research on breast cancer treatment presented this year. To help inform people about progress in cancer, ASCO publishes Cancer Advances, a series of consumer information resources. Cancer Advances: News for Patients from the 2008 Breast Cancer Symposium provides the latest information about breast cancer research and treatment. The information in this issue was presented at the 2008 Breast Cancer Symposium held in Washington, DC from September 5-7, 2008. For additional information about breast cancer, please visit Cancer.Net (www.cancer.net ), ASCO's patient information website.
