Survivors need science

I just published the op-ed “Why Women Need More Science with their Breast Cancer Stories” in the LA Times: http://www.latimes.com/opinion/op-ed/la-oe-ryan-breast-cancer-20141106-story.html

The piece takes on the narrowness of far too many breast cancer narratives in the media. Somehow, the more we’re learned about the complexities of breast cancer, the less willing we’ve become to acknowledge that not all breast cancers, or all survivors, are one in the same.
