What is Metastatic Breast Cancer?
Metastatic breast cancer (MBC) is different from early stage breast cancer. Once breast cancer moves from the breast to other organs it is considered stage IV and there is no cure. People who are diagnosed with MBC will remain in treatment for the remainder of their lives.
When breast cancer metastasizes, or travels from the breast to other organs, it most commonly travels to the brain, bone, liver, or lungs, Although some women and men with MBC live many years due to improving treatments, it is an incurable disease.
Twisted Pink is has been funding bold breakthroughs in research since 2015 to help advance science and provide new treatment options along with hope for people living with MBC.
