Wine and dine for breast cancer research

pink wineLooking for something to do this Wednesday night? Come and enjoy an evening of fun with family and friends at a lively silent auction in Denver’s own urban winery.  The Colorado Women’s Bar Association is hosting a fundraiser to benefit the Young Women’s Breast Cancer Translational Program, in honor of CWBA board member Sarah Chase-McRorie, who is being treated by this program.  The event will take place at The Infinite Monkey Theorem located at 3200 Larimer Street in Denver from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm on October 23. Event proceeds will benefit the ongoing breast cancer research at the University of Colorado Cancer Center.

Founded by Virginia Borges, MD, and Pepper Schedin, PhD, the program specializes in the treatment and prevention of breast cancer in women under age 40.  Cancers that are diagnosed in young mothers after pregnancy, called Pregnancy-Associated Breast Cancer, are more aggressive and deadly.  PABC is not a rare event or niche breast cancer, but a significant and deadly subset of the disease that may be increasing.  For more information on PABC and the work of the program, please visit http://www.uch.edu/conditions/cancer/breast-cancer/ywbctp/

Admission for this fundraiser is only $50, which includes appetizers and two glasses of wine.  Register here!

    yeah, i have heard of pregnancy associated BC before. I wonder that there are now lots of causes that are behind breast cancer. As the researches advance with time, the new causes appear up.
