Support groups are a safe place for women with metastatic breast cancer to talk about their feelings, share information and meet other women living with the disease.
Most women hear “stage IV” or metastatic breast cancer and think that their future is grim based on statistical outcomes from their doctors. They are left to manage through long-term treatments on their own, often feeling isolated from others in the breast cancer movement.
Metastatic breast cancer is a disease that women can live with and manage the symptoms of, for many years. Some women still work with metastatic breast cancer and remain extremely active. Others change their lifestyle and priorities after diagnosis. The first step in moving forward is getting support.
If you would like more information please call the hotline at 800.877.8077.
