Under 40 and living with metastatic breast caner

Libby Porter is a young woman, aged 36, from Alberta in Canada who posts regularly about her stage 4 breast cancer on Twitter, under @LibbyMBC, about the struggle she has to get appropriate treatment and access to the latest drugs. She's the mom of a three-year-old, Violet, the spitting image of her mom. Many of Libby's posts are about the fears of being unable to watch her Violet grow up, and the hopes she has for her daughter. At other times she rails against the Canadian health system.

Libby talked to meabout her situation.
