Collaboration: Metastatic Breast Cancer Alliance

SGK_NBCAM_2014_CollaborationMetastatic breast cancer is breast cancer that has spread beyond the breast to other organs in the body. In the U.S., most women with metastatic cancer develop it when cancer returns at some point after their initial breast cancer diagnosis and treatment.

An estimated 155,000 women and men are living with metastatic breast cancer in the U.S.

In October 2013, Susan G. Komen® joined forces with 14 other cancer charities and advocacy groups to form the Metastatic Breast Cancer Alliance (MBC Alliance).

MBCAlliance_logoThe MBC Alliance aims to unify the efforts of its members and to increase awareness and education while advancing research and policy – efforts for metastatic breast cancer that have the potential to extend life, enhance quality of life and ultimately find a cure.
