Metastatic Breast Cancer Portal

Approximately 30 percent of women and men diagnosed with breast cancer will at some point be diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer, and while metastatic breast cancer can be treated, it currently cannot be cured. 

This does not mean that those living with metastatic breast cancer cannot enjoy good quality of life! However, the needs and issues facing metastatic breast cancer patients are vastly different.

More education is needed women diagnosed, those completing treatment for primary breast cancer and the general public about the signs and symptoms of metastatic breast cancer.

During this month of October, when there is so much awareness raising of and fund raising for breast cancer research, we must not forget the 30 percent whose breast cancer has metastasized.

Help the Canadian Cancer Survivor Network raise awareness of the unmet needs of women living metastatic breast cancer. Contact us at to get involved:
