Researchers at UNMC are making strides in dealing with Her2.
Dr. Kay Wagner says Her2 is an aggressive type of breast cancer. He says there are several subsets and that each case must be treated differently.
Dr. Wagner says in previous studies, it was thought that by inhibiting a certain protein called Cyclin D1, the growth of breast cancer cells could be stopped or slowed. But he says his research indicated the opposite was true.
Being Heard: A Creative Healing Program takes place this Saturday at the Omaha Home for Boys.
Rita Paskowitz is the Director of the Storytelling workshop. She says this weekend’s program is geared toward at-risk youth.
Paskowitz says the purpose of creative healing is to get people to work through their grief using the arts. Workshops in storytelling, music, movement, poetry and visual arts will be offered on Saturday.
Paskowitz says it is sometimes easier for those who are grieving to express themselves through the arts.
