Mission Statement

MBCN is THE proactive metastatic voice in the breast cancer community.

The mission of MBCN is to change the way metastatic breast cancer is viewed by the breast cancer community and the public at large. MBCN is a proactive group, striving to help those living with metastatic breast cancer to be their own advocate through providing education and information on treatments and coping with the disease.

Description

The Metastatic Breast Cancer Network (MBCN) is a national, independent, patient-led, advocacy group of more than 1400 members dedicated to the special concerns of the 155,000 American women and men living with metastatic breast cancer. Metastatic breast cancer is breast cancer that has spread to other organs of the body, most commonly the bones, liver, lungs or brain.

We seek to change the way metastatic breast cancer is viewed by the breast cancer community and the public at large.

As an advocacy group, we give those living with metastatic breast cancer a greater voice and visibility in the breast cancer community.

Together, we fight for the development of treatments to extend life, as the search for a cure continues.

We offer free national conferences yearly at major cancer centers, a brochure for the newly-diagnosed, info on support groups across the country, t-shirts for all cancer walkers. We are presently working on a kit for the newly diagnosed.

MBCN originated Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day and was instrumnmental is having both the House and Senate declare the day nationwide.
