Home > Developing Awareness

During the month of October, the breast cancer community traditionally rallies together to applaud those who have beaten the disease. They wear a pink ribbon and many think they are cured.

We know better. We are the 155,000 men and women in the United States who are living with metastatic breast cancer.

The focus is on the pink ribbon - not on those of us living with this disease. We are kept hidden away… no one wants to mention the M word. We scare people! Sometimes, we scare ourselves!

We at MBCN believe that to change the status-quo, we must all be advocates..and advocacy comes in many forms.

 

On Sept 10, 2020 Stand Up 2 Cancer held its star studded telethon for raising funds for innovative cancer research and MBCN was there!

A form of advocacy is developing awareness, and that is what MBC Awareness Day is all about. Our Legislative Team went to DC and succeeded in obtaining House Resolution 787 and  Senate resolution 295 declaring MBC Awareness Day. 

The C-SPAN video is 20 minutes of House speakers all talking about us – the metastatic population.

Under Proclamations, Supporters and Articles we list some of the activities of MBC Awareness Day from the last three years in the US, Canada, UK and across all the cities and states.

Our 60-second Public Service Annnouncement was aired on cable channels bringing the word metastatic into homes across the country.

Outreach Report includes the Bridging Gaps/Expanding Outreach Report on unmet needs of the metastatic population as well as related articles.

 

And there is more to do!

Let the metastatic voice be heard!
