    Good luck Karuna. I am a 5 year survivor of stage III lbc. We simply have to do better at prevention, to the extent there is preventive actions, treatment, and survivorship. Thank you for your commitment and for all your hard work, and congratulations on your new job.

    I hadn’t visited the BCA website in quite awhile, and I was absolutely thrilled to see that you are the new Executive Director. What a wonderful choice. I’ve been living with Stage 4 breast cancer for over 6 years now, with an original Stage 1 diagnosis over 14 years ago. Knowing that you are at the helm of this organization gave me a much needed pep in my step today. I know you are a person with great integrity and that you will work hard for all of us. Congratulations Karuna!

    Dear Karuna,
    Breast cancer is an environmentally cause epidemic and there is a new element of the epidemic. Channel 2, KTVU-TV ran this short piece a short while ago: http://www.ktvu.com/videos/news/special-report-keeping-cell-phone-in-bra-may-lead/vhPF8/ I would hope the BCA would post this on your website. If you want more information, please contact me.
