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.

I'm here! My brother came to visit last week and we had a packed week filled with Hershey Park, a visit to the National Aquarium and on and on! We weren't home very much and then it was back to work - and you know what happens when you take a few days off from work - you have to work twice as long to get caught back up! Anyway I'm here - just had to take a little break from BC.org to enjoy my brother and my adorable neice! Thanks for thinking about me LuAnn and congrats on the new Grandson - although you hardly seem old enough to be a Grammie!
Take Care!

I am a young grandma It was very odd though, I was dx by an ER doc last year on July 2nd between 10 & 10:30 in the evening. This little boy made is presence this year on July 2nd at 10:11 pm. Kind of wierd, huh??? Then after that dx I was saying to someone I want to live long enough with this disease to see my grandkids. I had no clue my son would make my wish come true this fast!!!!!

Not weird at all! I'm one of those people that is always looking for a sign or some type of hidden meaning in everything that happens. What a wonderful thing to celebrate your one year mets anniversary and to also welcome this new life into your world. I'd say that this is a sign to look forward to what life is going to bring you this year and in the years to come. On a day when you are looking back on one of the scariest moments in your life, those memories are being crowded out by the joy of your newest grandchild - how wonderful! Congrats again LuAnn!
