Sharla Gayle Patterson, MD, MBA(HOM), FACS will be our Keynote Speaker this year.
Dr. Sharla Gayle Patterson, is a fellowship trained, breast surgical oncologist. Her medical journey started at Texas Tech University (2004), followed by general surgery residency at University of Southern Alabama (2009) and then on to a breast surgical oncology fellowship at Emory University (2010).
She is currently a practicing Breast Surgeon and Medical Director for the NCH comprehensive breast health center in Naples Florida. Along with that center, Dr. Patterson brings unique surgical techniques to breast surgery; hidden scar which allows surgeons to place the incision more carefully so it does not show after healing; she is skilled in nipple sparing mastectomy and breast conserving surgery. Additionally Dr. Patterson is trained to perform cryo-ablation procedures for small tumors in her office. Patients may be part of the FROST trial or treated outside of the clinical trial. She is also a reviewer for breast imaging technologies. She is ultrasound and stereotactic certified by the American Society of Breast Surgeons since 2011.
She enjoys spending time with her fellowship trained trauma surgeon husband and their 3 daughters (especially at Disney).
2020 Honorary Chair Person
We are pleased to announce that this year's Honorary Chairperson is Lori Krum, Lori is the President of The Gracie Foundation, Inc. with an office in Naples, FL. Before moving to Florida in 2015, Lori lived in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago where she ran a business focusing on the design and execution of fitness therapy programs for patients with cancer, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain.
Lori has been involved in many aspects of the healthcare industry throughout her life and has true compassion in helping women that are battling any type of cancer. Gail (Gracie) was Lori’s little sister and battled breast cancer 2008-2015.
The Gracie Foundation is a non-profit (501c3) organization that sends “Gracie Gifts” all over the USA to women currently undergoing treatment for ANY type of cancer. The gift bags are filled with fabulous items to help women combat side effects of cancer treatments and offer “Hope, Strength, and Positive Energy”.
In addition to making sure hundreds of gifts are sent out each month, Lori and her team spend a great deal of time communicating with women battling cancer through emails and phone calls, offering emotional support and encouragement.
The majority of “Gracie Gifts” are sent to women battling metastatic cancers so Lori understands the importance of developing research and is honored and excited to support Metavivor Research and Support INC in their efforts in supporting MBC patients.
Lori and her husband, Mark, have two daughters and a son in law, Kaila (Adam) and Kasey that live in the city of Chicago.
