New Light

New-Light-smallNew Light is a support group for patients with triple negative breast cancer. It is led by noted breast cancer specialist Andres Forero, M.D., and funded by a community grant from the Susan G. Komen North-Central Alabama Affiliate with additional support from the Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama.

Originally begun for triple negative breast cancer survivors, the group has expanded to include all breast cancer survivors and attracts many patients from hospitals outside UAB.

The purpose of New Light is to provide up-to-date medical information as it relates to oncology care and treatments. The group also serves as a support mechanism which helps patients find their strengths, and it offers support to survivors who might be dealing with similar obstacles along the treatment journey.
