The MBC Alliance is honored to have served as a catalyst and partner in the creation and launch of a new website, MBCBrainMets.org.

As the first one-stop resource hub for breast cancer patients living with brain metastasis or leptomeningeal disease, the new site was curated by fellow patients and supported by funding from nonprofit Alliance member SHARE Cancer Support. By sharing cutting-edge information and resources in a simple format, the site connects people living with brain metastasis to knowledge and support tailored specifically to their needs.

Created by patient advocates to fill an unmet need.


October MAY BE Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but Metastatic Breast Cancer is
Here All Year.
Help us spread the word… year-round!

Each month, our Here All Year campaign explores a new topic around metastatic breast cancer—from myth and stigma busters, to new research and strategies for improving outcomes. Want to help make a difference for people living with MBC, all year long? Dig deeper into the research, explore the available resources and share them on your social and email channels.

New Study Shows Regional Differences in Improved Survival of Patients with
De Novo Metastatic Breast Cancer Over Time

NEW YORKOct. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — A retrospective analysis – reported in the journal Cancer by Judith Malmgren, PhD, and co-authors – studied patients in the Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) 9 population and an institutional cohort with de novo metastatic breast cancer (MBC), which is a first diagnosis of breast cancer that is stage IV. The SEER 9 population includes cancer patients in nine US regions including Seattle-Puget Sound, and is representative of the US population. The institutional cohort includes patients with breast cancer who are followed over time, who live in the Seattle-Puget Sound registry area, and whose cases are included in SEER Seattle-Puget Sound. Approximately 13,000 new cases of de novo MBC are diagnosed annually in the United States.

Welcome to the Precision Medicine* Revolution

*PRECISION MEDICINE is a form of medicine that uses information about a person’s genes, proteins, and environment to prevent, diagnose, and treat disease. In cancer, precision medicine uses specific information about a person’s tumor to help diagnose, plan treatment, find out how well treatment is working, or make a prognosis. Examples of precision medicine include using targeted therapies to treat specific types of cancer cell, such as HER2-positive breast cancer cells, or using tumor marker testing to help diagnose cancer.
Also called personalized medicine.
