Forum: Stage IV/Metastatic Breast Cancer ONLY —

Please respect that this forum is for members with stage IV/metastatic breast cancer only. There is a separate forum for caregivers and friends: Caring for Someone with Stage 4 or Mets.

Metastatic breast cancer (MBC; also called stage IV) is breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body, most commonly the bones, liver, brain, or lungs. Metastatic breast cancer can be treated but not cured. Metastatic disease is NOT hopeless. There are a wide variety of treatment options for metastatic breast cancer, and new medicines are being tested every day. More and more people are living life to the fullest while being treated for metastatic breast cancer.

Note: Please contact your doctor for any specific concerns about symptoms you are experiencing or your course of treatment.

Learn more about living with MBC.

To everyone that knew Roza,

This is her daughter, Nikoleta. I'm very sorry to tell you that my mom passed away this morning at 10:45. I know you all cared for her very much, and I thank you for that. She told me months ago to inform you if it ever happened. I just can't believe it actually happened...
Thank you for talking to her when she was well and giving her hope. Now all we can do is pray for her soul. She was a beautiful person. She cared for everyone very much. Everytime there was bad news on this forum, she would tell me, and we would cry together for whoever it was that passed away, even though we didn't personally know them. I just can't believe that now it's her turn to be cried for....

Take care everyone,

I'm also very very sorry to hear of your mother's passing. She was so supportive of everyone here. I remember her first post, how she gave such hope as she had conquered so much herself.
