Grand Forks, ND (WDAY TV) -- More than 50 women learned more about breast cancer and genetic testing options in Grand Forks.

The breast cancer awareness conference had survivors sharing stories. Speakers told the crowd of women about risk assessment and the Live Strong program at the YMCA.

Organizers call this is a great way to educate women and family about issues and a way learn to from each other.

Altru Cancer Center Manager, Nancy Klatt, says, “One of the extra benefits as well as the education is the chance for people to meet with other people that have gone through similar type events. I mean the breaks are great because people can socialize and really compare their experiences.”

This is the second year of that conference.
