New findings from the Suppression of Ovarian Function Trial (SOFT) found that adding ovarian suppression to adjuvant exemestane (Aromasin) or to tamoxifen significantly reduced a premenopausal woman’s risk for recurrence. Join LBBC’s Young Women’s Initiative and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Ann Partridge, MD, MPH, to hear more about these findings and what it means for you.

  • Heard from young women affected by breast cancer about their experience with ovarian suppression
  • Explored what questions to ask your doctor and concerns you need to consider when making your treatment decisions around ovarian suppression
