October 13 is Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) Awareness Day? Every year on 10/13, the Coalition hosts our annual Advanced Breast Cancer Seminar: Tools for the Journey.
MBC survivors, their families, friends, caregivers, and health care providers are invited to attend this one-of-a-kind, half-day seminar free of charge. As the title suggests, our speakers offer tools for attendees in the form of education and personal experience. Physicians from our region share the latest information, studies, and treatments available, and MBC survivors offer their stories and personal experiences of living with this disease.
