“When I was first diagnosed, I felt powerless, burdened and alone. I now know that I am not alone in experiencing the struggles, losses and complex emotions triggered by this disease. As a result of my work with MBCN, I feel stronger, supported and useful. Through advocating for increased awareness of metastatic breast cancer, helping you tell your stories and fighting for treatments to extend our lives, I feel a renewed sense of purpose.”
— Joani Gudeman (1964-2014), MBCN’s Chair of Outreach and Volunteers
The Metastatic Breast Cancer Network (MBCN), a volunteer, patient-led advocacy organization, seeks to address the unique needs and concerns of women and men who are living with metastatic or Stage IV breast cancer.
