Breastlink Medical Director of Oncology John Link, M.D., recently received a letter from a student asking about oncology and breast cancer. Unfortunately, this junior high school student had recently lost a relative to breast cancer. This experience inspired her to make breast cancer the topic of a yearlong, school research project. Dr. Link was pleased to answer some of her questions. Read his response below.
I am happy to answer your breast cancer questions to help with your research project. It sounds like a good project to work on. It made me sad to hear about your loved one having died of breast cancer.
