Overview

In part 4 of our monthly series, we tackle the common questions regarding surgery, medications and immunotherapy. Our patient hosts will talk with an oncologist about the existing treatment options, as well as potential side effects and how to manage them.

"Let’s Talk Metastatic Breast Cancer” is an eight-part series of 30-minute webinars that will air monthly, from May to December 2020. This online series is bringing 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 will ask 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 when we discuss treatment side effects and quality of life. Please send questions in advance to breast@patientpower.info
