MCW Cancer Center Leadership and Members in the News, Breast Cancer Awareness Month
During Breast Cancer Awareness Month, local media turned to MCW and Cancer Center investigators and clinicians for the latest developments in breast cancer research and treatment.
Dr. Joan Neuner, Associate Professor of Internal Medicine, and co-leader of the Cancer Center’s Population Sciences research program, was featured by Fox 6 news for her novel investigation about the negative bony side-effects of breast cancer treatments. Dr. Neuner’s grant from the American Cancer Society (ACS), which funds her studies about brittle bones in breast cancer survivors, was recently renewed for the sixth year in a row.
You can see the interview with Dr. Neuner here:
Dr. Amanda Kong, Assistant Professor of Surgical Oncology, was interviewed by 620 WTMJ for her work helping preserve the fertility of women undergoing treatment for breast cancer. Her efforts in oncofertility give younger victims of breast cancer hope for future childbearing.

It is because of the efforts of our Cancer Center members, scientists and clinicians like Dr. Neuner and Dr. Kong, that women diagnosed with breast cancer today have more options, a higher quality of life, and a better understanding of treatments and side-effects.
