The Annual Metastatic Conference has been thoughtfully planned by a small committee of women living with metastatic breast cancer. The Planning Committee designed the agenda to provide conference participants with an opportunity to:
(1) Learn about scientific breakthroughs and emerging treatment options
(2) Discover different ways to improve quality of life on a daily basis
(3) Gain support and build community
The conference is geared towards people living with metastatic breast cancer but is open to breast cancer patients of all stages.
Over the course of the conference, presenters will cover the biology of metastatic breast cancer, advances in treatment, emerging research, clinical trials, as well as address the psychological and social issues faced by those living with MBC and caregivers.
