Breast cancer awareness takes on a whole new meaning for a woman diagnosed with a metastatic (advanced/stage IV) form of the disease. Living Beyond Breast Cancer (LBBC) and the Metastatic Breast Cancer Network (MBCN) have partnered to create a new resource designed to address the needs of women facing a diagnosis.

The “Metastatic Breast Cancer Series: Guide for the Newly Diagnosed” is a free publication (for orders of 10 copies or more, a small shipping and handling fee will be charged) that will help women navigate the first days, weeks and months following their diagnosis. The guide is written in easy-to-understand language and was reviewed and edited by women living with metastatic breast cancer. The guide was also reviewed by LBBC and MBCN staff, health care professionals, medical and surgical oncologists, social workers, nurses, researchers and a palliative care specialist.

No membership is required to access or download information about the guide.
