MOLINE, ILLINOIS (October 5, 2021) — Gilda’s Club is hosting a FREE educational program entitled “Breast Cancer Art Project” for anyone impacted by cancer on Wednesday, October 13, 2021, 6-7:30PM at Gilda’s Club Quad Cities Moline Clubhouse located at 600 John Deere Road, Moline, Illinois, 61265.
Join Gilda's Club Quad Cities and Anne Warren RN/MS/ANP-BC/AOCNP, Clinical Nurse Educator, Puma Biotechnology, for a workshop about HER2+ Breast Cancer. This presentation will provide you with information about early-stage HER2+ (human epidermal growth-factor receptor 2) breast cancer and help you understand more ways to reduce your risk of recurrence.
HER2+ cancer cells have too many HER2 receptors. These are called HER2-positive cancers. HER2 receptors tell the cell to grow and divide. Therefore, cancers that are HER2-positive are more likely to grow and spread more rapidly. HER2-positive breast cancers can be more aggressive, but also respond to specific HER-2 targeted drugs.
This program is being offered in a hybrid model. Attendees can register to attend in-person or via Zoom. Dinner will be provided for in-person attendees. Registration is REQUIRED.
