MBC Alliance members Living Beyond Breast Cancer and MBC Network partnered to create a guide specifically for newly diagnosed patients. The Metastatic Breast Cancer Series: Guide for the Newly Diagnosed, available here, will give you the information and support you need to make informed decisions about your treatment and to manage your emotions during the first few months after a metastatic diagnosis.
Section 3 of the Guide explains treatment options for metastatic breast cancer. The guide provides a summary of treatment options and a checklist of 10 questions to ask your doctor about treatments.
