Our very own Dr. Barbara Baskin was featured on "BREAST CANCER: NEW VISION & NEW HOPE" that aired Sunday, October 13th. WABC-TV. Hosted by Eyewitness News Anchor, Liz Cho, the Special brings you new FDA rules and new visual tools that give breast cancer patients hope. This year marks WABC's twenty fifth year of working with the American Cancer Society.

The Special features a game changer, in that the FDA has for the first time now approved the use of Immunotherapy in breast cancer. Given in combination with chemotherapy to patients newly diagnosed with metastatic triple negative breast cancer it is having amazing results. The FDA is also, for the first time in 20 years, proposing a change to their regulations on Mammography. If it passes, all mammogram providers will be required to inform women if they have dense breasts. A young survivor speaks to her resulting advocacy for surveillance to include both Mammograms and Sonograms.
