Breast Cancer in Young Women:
A Multi-Piece Puzzle for Dr. Tal Sella
"Because life in Boston is so expensive, especially with multiple children, we’ve found the APF grant incredibly useful. We have used it for things including childcare and, in the beginning, buying the basic things we needed. Of course, later on we needed winter gear, something we’d never owned before. We actually had to buy it twice as we found that the first set of gear we purchased wasn’t warm enough."
Thank you to Mr. and Mrs. David and Tzilla Barone of Sharon, MA,
for sponsoring Tal Sella's fellowship.
