Overview

What challenges face women who are diagnosed at a younger age? A group of younger metastatic breast cancer patients are joined by a social worker to talk about how they’re coping with issues that are central to their daily lives. From employment, fertility, raising kids, to managing finances. 

This is part 7 of 8 in our "Let’s Talk Metastatic Breast Cancer” series. This online series brought together metastatic patients, their doctors, researchers and social workers to explore the challenges of being a metastatic breast cancer patient. 

The series is structured around the chronology of the patient's journey. We began with the moment of diagnosis, then on through prognosis and treatment while touching on the tribulations that metastatic disease poses to everyday lives. How does breast cancer affect working, caregiving and intimacy? We asked experts to help us understand the future, both medically and personally, for life with metastatic disease.  What are today’s clinical trials all about?  How is the world of the metastatic patient evolving?  “Let’s Talk Metastatic Breast Cancer” offers metastatic patients the information and resources they’re looking for, and the sense of community that is so important.

Tune in next month for our last episode when we discuss the exciting frontiers of research, clinical trials and the future of treatment.
