How Do I Connect with People Living with Advanced Breast Cancer?

Navigating life with advanced breast cancer can be overwhelming, especially if you do not know others who are also living with this terminal illness. It is hard to know where to turn when all the information is so new and unfamiliar. You may be looking to connect with real people living with advanced breast cancer, but you do not know where to find them!

The good news is you do not need to know someone with advanced breast cancer to hear real-life experiences, have your worries heard, and get your questions answered!

It is easy to talk to others in our community when you register.

How can I connect with others?

Most people start by reading our articles about living with MBC - treatment options and side effects, relationships, and navigating life with a terminal illness.

Many articles on this website are written by someone who was diagnosed with advanced breast cancer, caregivers, and health care providers. Other writers on our Editorial Team bring the latest news and information about MBC to the community.

At the end of our articles, there is a comments section where members can join the conversation. You can add a comment to share your personal experiences on the subject or ask a related question. We also have a range of emoji reactions if you would like to share how you feel about the article – surprised, sad, supportive, and more.
