Experts Answer Your Questions About Breast Cancer

Melody Cobleigh, MD, a renowned medical oncologist at Rush, will participate in an online Q&A about breast cancer on Friday, Oct. 12, from noon to 1 p.m. She’ll be joined by breast cancer surgeon Andrea Madrigrano, MD.

In this video, Cobleigh talks about her involvement in research of the medication Herceptin, which is now part of the standard of care for breast cancer treatment.

“We were dealing with some patients who were extremely ill who got better right before our eyes,” she says, “and that was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life in medicine.”
