Standing Together Stage 4 Breast Cancer - Awareness Month

Last updated: October 2020

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM), and we know for our community that this month can be difficult for those living with advanced or metastatic breast cancer. We know that while the month is talking about breast cancer the language and activities are geared to those who are living with early-stage breast cancer whose experience is quite different.

Our goal for the month is to let you know that we hear you and we are here 4 you. This month and always we standing together for stage 4 breast cancer. During the month we will offer a series of activities that meet the needs of our advanced community including continuing to share your voices and experiences, offering meditation and yoga sessions to help reduce stress and provide journaling ideas and exercises to help with coping. We know that not everyone understands what it is like to live with a terminal illness and to experience the physical symptoms, side effects, and emotional and mental impact it has every single day.
