Sip with Susan: Dr. Stephen Taplin hosts Dr. Susan Love for a virtual tasting and Q&A on breast cancer, August 13th

July 31st, 2020

When Melinda Taplin was diagnosed with breast cancer over 10 years ago, her brother, a physician, connected her with Dr. Susan Love. It was often difficult to even articulate the questions Melinda wanted to ask her doctor, but Dr. Susan Love’s Breast Book provided guidance and understanding so Melinda could formulate her questions. Despite the knowledge that exists there are still many unanswered questions that can help prevent and cure breast cancer. The Foundation is undertaking much of that research.

The need to address unanswered questions is the motivation behind our Melinda’s Rosé partnership with Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research.

There is an opportunity to participate in a conversation with Dr. Susan Love when Dr. Stephen Taplin hosts her virtually at Taplin Cellars on

Why Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer Research? Because of their approach based on evidence, because of their innovative thinking, and because they are looking for answers that are relevant to women.  Just to give an example, you would think that in the 21st century human anatomy is well understood. Surprisingly, the breast and its ducts are understudied. Breast cancer likely originates in the breast ducts, so understanding the ductal system is crucial to finding the cause of breast cancer. Dr. Susan Love Foundation for Breast Cancer research is using ultrasound technology to map the usual anatomy of the ductal breast system. In science, it is often these overlooked areas that can provide the knowledge we need to fully prevent disease.
