Last week, the Breast Cancer Alliance’s 23rd Annual Benefit Luncheon and Fashion Show garnered over 1,000 advocates, united in its mission to combat the disease that affects 1 in 8 women. Connecticut has the second highest incidence of breast cancer in the country. One of the benefit speakers was Elisa Port, MD, FACS, chief of breast surgery and director of the Dubin Breast Center at Mount Sinai. Dr. Port, who performs hundreds of operations per year, is a leading expert in sentinel-node biopsy, nipple sparing mastectomy, as well as the use of breast MRI, told the audience that she was truly honored to play a part in changing the trajectory of the disease. “I am so inspired by all of my patients,” said Dr. Port. “While we have so many treatment options, there is no one size fits all,” added Dr. Port. “That’s why you need specially trained doctor’s that organizations, such as the BCA, support who spend a full year learning about the nuances of the disease.”
