About one in eight women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer during her lifetime, but according to Ursa Brown-Glaberman, MD, “most patients are cured of their disease. The key is to find the disease early when it is still curable.”
Brown-Glaberman is a breast cancer specialist at the UNM Comprehensive Cancer Center and co-leads the Breast team. Breast team member, Bernard Tawfik, MD, will represent the faculty of the UNM Cancer Center at the football game. The UNM Cancer Center will host an invitation-only pre-game reception for breast cancer survivors and their families.
“We appreciate the UNM Lobo Football organization for their support of our patients and all those who fight breast cancer,” says Cheryl Willman, MD, Director and CEO of the UNM Cancer Center. “Lobos Love Pink games help us to raise awareness for screening, and screening helps us to save lives.”
The University of New Mexico Lobos will kick off against the Air Force Falcons on Saturday, Nov. 9, at 12 pm in Dreamstyle Stadium, 1414 University Blvd SE, Albuquerque. To purchase tickets in advance, call the Lobo Ticket Office at 505-925-LOBO or visit golobos.com/tickets. Wear pink to the game and purchase a ticket for just $9!
