Make Advanced & Metastatic Matter - Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October marks Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This year, we want to come together to share the facts and dispel the myths related to late-stage breast cancer. We'll be posting Myths on Mondays and Facts on Fridays to our site and socials. On Wednesdays, we'll be sharing a prompt discussion to learn more about our community. Be sure to spread the word to increase awareness on who gets advanced breast cancer and what life is like living with the diagnosis. Whether we are patients with different late-stage diagnoses or caregivers of loved ones, our experiences with this condition are often similar. Together we can make advanced and metastatic matter!
