Meet Our SurviveMISS Team!

SurviveMISS joined the Gulf States Young Breast Cancer Network, in partnership with SurviveDAT in Louisiana and SurviveAL in Alabama, to further the work that Dr. Barbara Craft has been doing with young breast cancer survivors at the University of Mississippi Medical Center’s (UMMC) Cancer Institute since 2010.

Barbara Craft, M.D.

Breast Cancer Treatment and Prevention Program Director

Cancer Institute Breast Services Team Chair

Division of Hematology/Oncology Associate Professor

Barbara has many titles, but they all focus on one objective: To provide the best possible care for Mississippi’s breast cancer patients. To that end, she received her medical degree, as well as completed her residency and fellowship at UMMC, which she followed up with a breast medical oncology fellowship at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center. When she’s not working, Barbara spends as much time as possible with her husband, an orthopedic surgeon, and their children. Fun fact? She can’t smell the sulfur-containing thiols that skunks spray.

Mississippi's Young Breast Cancer Survivor Network

Young women with breast cancer face unique issues. And in the South, there are more young women overall facing breast cancer. In Mississippi, young African-American women are significantly more likely to suffer from breast cancer.

That is why SurvivMISS is here. Part of the Gulf States Young Breast Cancer Survivor Network, SurviveMISS's mission is to help improve the quality of life for young breast cancer survivors, as well as their family and friends, by providing continuing resources and support.
