Patient Resources
"Expedition Inspiration is dedicated to supporting breast cancer research and bringing that new knowledge to patients.  It can be difficult for patients who are struggling with the diagnosis of breast cancer to find clear, timely and reliable sources of information on treatment, care and research.  Thus, we have asked EI's Medical Advisory Committee to provide a list of trusted web-based resources.  This tab provides patients with important links to the very best sources of information available on breast cancer today." —Medical Advisory Committee Chair Angela DeMichele, MD, MSCE
