Blue Cure is the blue side of the women's pink breast cancer movement.
Dr. Margaret I. Cuomo will be the featured speaker. Dr. Cuomo, the author of A World Without Cancer, will provide a look at how profit, personalities and politics obstruct real progress toward prevention, cure of the disease and what individuals can do to live a cancer-free life.
