Victoria Goldberg has been living with HER2+/ER+ metastatic breast cancer since January 2014. She had been originally diagnosed with early-stage cancer in 2004; and in January 2014, a CT scan showed that her cancer had returned and had spread to her liver and bones. Victoria had an exceptionally good response to her treatments and physically recovered pretty quickly. Before MBC, a big part of her life and how she defined herself had been her career. The side effects of the treatment forced her to stop working earlier than she had planned. She was not ready for retirement and felt the need to assist others who live with this dreadful disease. Advocacy gave her that missing structure and purpose. It felt “right.” She came to SHARE in 2017, first as a BC helpline volunteer, and now as a founder and manager of TalkMets, SHARE’s dedicated helpline for those living with MBC, and a support group facilitator. In July 2020, Victoria joined the team behind the Our MBC Life podcast. She is one of the senior producers and trying her hand at sound editing, graphic design, and co-hosting. She is also an editor and writer of the Our MBC Life blog. As a graduate of 2018 NBCC’s Project LEAD, Victoria is expanding her proficiency and knowledge of cancer science and research. She is a resident of New York City. She never forgets that she is living with an advanced disease, but it’s no longer on the forefront of her life.
