The Hilton Hotel in Harrisburg rolled out the pink carpet for the Pennsylvania breast cancer coalition’s 20th annual conference. Participants took part in educational workshops which highlighted the latest in breast cancer research, treatment, and advocacy. Speakers at today’s event included PA first lady Susan Corbett, world renowned breast cancer researcher, Dr. Dennis Slamon as well as survivors of breast cancer.
Breast cancer survivor, Alice Sanders says, “We will eventually run out of business, we can afford to fund a cure for this disease so we don’t have to continue this fight for research, to save lives”.
