IN 2011, THE UAB COMPREHENSIVE CANCER
CENTER FORMED NEW LIGHT, a support group
for patients, survivors and their families touched
by triple-negative breast cancer. Funded by
the Susan G. Komen North Central Alabama
Affiliate, the group educates families about
triple-negative breast cancer treatment and care.
At New Light’s quarterly meetings, oncology
professionals and research scientists from the
Cancer Center provide insight into managing
the disease—one of the most aggressive and
difficult-to-treat forms of breast cancer.
