What is Metastatic (Stage 4) Breast Cancer?
METAvivor will be hitting the road this spring in a cross-country trip, learning from our researchers, meeting with our supporters, visiting with patients, and educating communities.
Nancy Stordahl writes "We all have a responsibility to more fully acknowledge, embrace and support those living with metastatic breast cancer. Only when we combine our voices, will those living with mets begin to feel more visible, more heard and ultimately, a little less alone.'
