    Should of posted this a long time ago but actually didn't know this was available. Diagnosed with Breast Cancer in 2008, Dr. Forero-Torres is a warm caring compassionate Dr. I have yearly checkups and have been cancer free as of 2010. He never let me have a pity party and always lifted my spirits. I would recommend Dr. Forero-Torres to anyone diagonosed with cancer, with God,Dr. Helen Krontiras and Dr. Forero I am alive and cancer free, ready for year 6 now. I Love you Dr. Forero

    BC diagnosed by UAB Breast Care Center, Dec 2015. Many tests performed prior to learning I have Stage 4, Dr Forero prescribed Ibrance 100 mg and Letrozole 2.5 mg estrogen blocker for me beginning 1/28/16. My 2nd PET scan taken 3/2816 shows NO CANCER!!! I'm still in shock... Yes, it was Stage 4 HER2 on right breast, lymph nodes and left lung, all biopsies-all positive! I'm so glad I called UAB instead of a general surgeon; that would've been fatal! And now, 55 chemo pills later, I'm CANCER FREE
