Metastatic breast cancer is also called stage IV or advanced breast cancer.
At University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center, offer one of the only support and education groups in Northeast Ohio for women with stage IV breast cancer.
Metastatic Breast Cancer Network (MBCN) was founded in 2004 by Jane Soyer and Nina Schulmanis a national, independent, nonprofit, all volunteer patient advocacy group dedicated to the unique concerns of the women and men living with metastatic breast cancer. When diagnosed with advanced breast cancer, they experienced feelings of isolation from the very groups established to provide support. They felt the stigma of being a failure in the breast cancer community. Their belief that cancer cannot be viewed as a disease from which one is either a survivor or to which one has succumbed, fueled their desire to advocate for change.
(Ohio Revised Code: 5.2291 Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day.)
The thirteenth day of October is designated as "Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day" to raise public awareness and understanding of breast cancer that has spread through the bloodstream to other parts of the body. (Added by 129th General AssemblyFile No.151, SB 199, 1, eff. 3/13/2013.)
