October is the month where everything that could possibly turn pink, turns pink. For these 31 days, breast cancer awareness manifests in the most creative forms — from pink soup cans to pink-laced football cleats. Who works beyond the rush of pink October? Who is there to help the newly diagnosed women cope and recover year-round? At Clemson, one group of professors and researchers is dedicated to helping these women put their worlds back together. They’re focused on how to treat the disease, and — just as importantly — on how to treat the woman who is dealing with it. Some cover the science, some cover the psychology, but all are coming together to form a multi-faceted method for preventing, treating, surviving and defeating breast cancer.
