For too long in Canada women and men diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer have been regulated to the sides of breast cancer organizations. A patient could not click on a home page or open a brochure on breast cancer and expect her or his needs to be upfront. Instead metastatic information is found in appendices or is barely mentioned at all.
The MBCAC purpose is to join their voices to advocate to Canadian governments for better research and medical resources, to coordinate with other Canadian breast cancer organizations and to connect with people with metastatic breast cancer.
