Craig's Motivation: After being diagnosed with Testicular Cancer back in November 1999 and battling through it all, I think raising money so others don't have to go through the same thing is the best gift I can give myself and everyone else.

SABCS 2013: Thousands Gather to Hear the Latest in Breast Cancer Research - Cancer Today

"Here in San Antonio, a crowd of more than 7,000 people from around the world will gather for one of the world's largest scientific meetings devoted solely to breast cancer.

Starting today through Saturday, the 2013 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium (SABCS) will spotlight the newest discoveries in the science of breast cancer and the best ways to prevent and treat the disease, which affects about one in eight American women. The conference is a collaboration of the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), the Cancer Therapy and Research Center (CTRC) at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, and Baylor College of Medicine. Now in its 36th year, SABCS attracts physicians, nurses, researchers and patient advocates. Breast cancer specialist Carlos Arteaga calls it “the breast cancer family.” Arteaga is conference co-director and president-elect of the AACR. “We get together every year to learn the latest in breast cancer and to get a thermometer on the rate of progress,” said Arteaga, associate director for translational/clinical research and director of the Breast Cancer Program at Vanderbilt-Ingram Comprehensive Cancer Center in Nashville. Beth Emery is a five-year survivor and president of the Alamo Breast Cancer Foundation (ABCF), a San Antonio-based nonprofit that offers financial assistance to patient advocates who want to attend the symposium. Since the scholarship program started in 1998, the foundation has brought 505 advocates to SABCS from every state and 22 foreign countries. ABCF holds nightly “Hot Topics Mentor Sessions,” where doctors and scientists spend two hours putting the day’s research highlights into perspective. Last year, a few hundred survivors, patient advocates, nurses and other health professionals filled the room each night. “The advocates that come out of the symposium create this national and international network of people who help connect patients with the resources and information they need to know what’s going on,” Emery said."

Here's some of the hot topcs that are being covered at the symposium according to Carlos Artega:


• NeoALTTO study: Do patients live longer when they respond well to a combination of Herceptin and Tykerb plus chemotherapy before surgery?

• BETH trial: Does adding Avastin to post-surgery therapy for HER2-positive breast cancer improve outcomes?

 • IBIS-II study: Can the antihormone drug Arimidex prevent breast cancer in healthy postmenopausal women at high risk?

• I-SPY 2 trial: Does adding the chemotherapy drug carboplatin and the PARP inhibitor veliparib to standard chemo before surgery eliminate more tumors?

• CALGB/Alliance 40603 trial: Does adding either carboplatin or Avastin to standard chemotherapy before surgery wipe out more triple-negative breast cancers?

Looking forward to hearing all the updates from SABCS 2013.
