Oct 1, 2014
During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, most of the breast cancer conversation centers around early detection and survivorship.

Up to a quarter of a million people are living with this diagnosis today in the U.S., but in a recent survey, more than 60 percent of people said they know little to nothing about it. On The Doctors, Pfizer’s Chief Medical Officer, Freda Lewis-Hall, M.D., and Noreen Fraser, metastatic breast cancer patient and founder of the Noreen Fraser Foundation, share the facts and dispel misconceptions about the disease.
