Take Your Best Guess: ABC In America Statistics

Each person’s experience with advanced breast cancer (ABC) can be unique. In order to find out more about life with ABC, we conducted our 2nd Annual ABC In America survey. More than 500 people living with ABC participated, and the results were interesting. In order to share some of these responses, we created a quick quiz. Test your knowledge on ABC and let us know how you did in the comments, or if any of the results surprised you.

We learn so much from anonymous surveys like these. Some responses verify what has previously been thought, while others teach us about new aspects of life with ABC. Our Advanced Breast Cancer In America survey is conducted yearly. We would love to have you participate next year and have your voice be heard!

The 2nd Annual In America Survey was conducted online from September 2019 to February 2020. 546 people with advanced breast cancer completed the survey.
