Cancer Warrior - Dr Barbara Buttin

The sign is ready and the balloons are here. Just get the walking shoes on and Team Chasen is ready for the Walk to Break the Silence. The donations are close to the $300,000 mark - walk day contributions will make a big difference.
I would like to share the story of one of my favorite cancer warriors - Dr. Barbara Buttin. Dr. Buttin, a former resident of Dr. David Mutch at Washington University School of Medicine, was understanding to my story of Hereditary Ovarian Cancer. Dr. Buttin has been tasked with a new mission - to begin the Center of Excellence in Gynecological Oncology in Winfield, IL. Although Dr Buttin is no longer in the classroom, she is still teaching. She is educating the public and medical community as she speaks on Hereditary & Family susceptibility of breast, ovarian and endometrial cancer. She tells me there is so much more work to do. That is why we cannot stop walking.
