May 7, 2021
This article features Tracey Hecht, a young mother of two and a patient of Dr. Carmen Calfa.
She’s planning to enroll in a clinical trial at Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center at the University of Miami that is testing a vaccine, which if it were to work, could help prevent the recurrence of triple negative breast cancer, one of the more aggressive forms of breast cancer.
The vaccine trial is one of several studies being conducted in South Florida aimed at treating breast cancer in a more focused, risk-factored approach.
