MARIETTA, Ga. (AP) - An event in metro Atlanta is aimed at teaching employers what they can do to support working women who are battling breast cancer.

The nonprofit Georgia Breast Cancer Coalition Fund is hosting the Breast Cancer in the Workplace Forum Wednesday at The Mansour Center in Marietta.

Director of the Georgia Breast Cancer Coalition Fund, Amy Upchurch, said in a release that despite advances in treatment, a breast cancer diagnosis still means a long-term and complicated battle for many women. Upchurch says the organization’s goal is to educate employers on how they can support workers through every stage of their fight against breast cancer.

The event is expected to feature a discussion on best practices led by representatives from Home Depot, Georgia Center for Oncology Research and Education and others.
