It can be intimidating joining a group for a first time but we are here for you.
Metastatic breast disease is breast cancer that has not just come back, but has made its way through the bloodstream and spread to other organs of the body, such as the bones, liver, or brain. Cancer spread may be present at first diagnosis or after recurrence. Many women can live for years with metastatic cancer that is under control. For these women, living with a diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer is like living with a chronic disease. Their needs are much different than those of a women recently diagnosed or who's cancer is isolated to the breast.
