October is the month where everything turns pink to support breast cancer awareness.
A breast cancer registry started in 2006 at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center is producing results for researchers. The registry connects researchers with people who have had breast cancer or have a family history of it. Cancer Institutes track their patients but Dr. Susan Pinney with the UC and Cincinnati Cancer institutes says similar registries are rare.
Maryanne Zeleznik talks with Dr. John Link, who has just released the 5th edition of the Breast Cancer Survival Manual which provides patients with a great understanding of their diagnosis and the variety of treatment options.
