Professor Karen Bishop Morris, a boardmember of Laini Fuellen Charities, and Dr. Mary Nicholson with Community Healthcare System will talk about "triple negative breast cancer," the research work underway to find a cure and the October 12th "Pink Tie Affair" event to raise money for the work and other programs.  The "Pink Tie Affair" will be held at Ameristar Casino in East Chicago.The director of the U.
