Looking for your tips to share with members who have been newly diagnosed stage IV/metastatic. Being diagnosed with Stage IV/Metastatic disease involves a unique set of concerns. If you could give your newly-diagnosed-with-mets self advice/tips/encouragement, what would you say? Please post in the thread below.

We're hoping to share these tips in our next Community Email Newsletter, with a highlight on National Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day, Oct 13, so any and all tips/advice you could share in the next week would be very much appreciated!

Thank you in advance to this very special and valued group!

I was told in Jan one met pelvis. Then radiation dr said not convinced it’s cancer. So off to a 3rd opinion and he tells me it’s through my whole spine. I’m in total shock. I have to be here for my 5 year old at least til he’s 20. I am happy to see good stories here. Helps a lot. I haven’t even started tx yet for the mets.

Thank you so much for your post- I was dx last month as stage 4 and am still reeling. I have started treatment and thats OK so far, but I just am so scared about what to expect next. I totally understand the views of others when they say they wake up and do a quick check- how am I today? Thanks all of you for your positive posts- really helpful. xx
