Newly Diagnosed with MBC
This month we are focusing on resources and information that would be helpful when newly diagnosed with MBC. Learning you have MBC is likely to be overwhelming. It is important to understand how metastatic breast cancer differs from other stages of breast cancer. It is natural to ask: Who can help me? What happens next? What do I do now? About 168,300 individuals are living with metastatic breast cancer in the United States. Metastatic breast cancer is life changing, and managing the disease will now be part of your daily life. There are trusted resources available that can support you and a community that understands what it means to navigate and cope with a MBC diagnosis.
This month’s content was developed in collaboration with Living Beyond Breast Cancer, a national nonprofit organization that seeks to create a world that understands there is more than one way to have breast cancer. To fulfill its mission of providing trusted information and a community of support to those impacted by the disease, Living Beyond Breast Cancer offers on-demand emotional, practical and evidence-based content. With thirty years of experience, the organization remains committed to creating a culture of acceptance—where sharing the diversity of the lived experience of breast cancer fosters self-advocacy and hope.
