Today, October 13, is National Metastatic Breast Cancer Day. The purpose isto educate the public that there is no cure for what I have. Read this Huffington Post article for more information. Or check out the Metastatic Breast Cancer Network.
Metastatic breast cancer is a different disease than early stage breast cancer. I am glad that your aunt beat Stage 1 breast cancer, that your friends who had surgery, chemo, and radiation are now fine. I was fine for four years before my mets were found, the day I broke my leg.
