Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day
Metastatic (stage 4) breast cancer is cancer that has spread to another part of the body. It is still breast cancer, but now there are tumors in other places like the lungs, liver, brain, or bones. I have metastatic breast cancer that has spread to my bones. Presently, there is no cure.
Today is PINK OUT Day, a movement started by metastatic breast cancer patients to raise awareness and to get #Metastatic #Breast #Cancer to trend online. This movement was created because metastatic breast cancer is often ignored at events that celebrate breast cancer survivors with pink ribbons, pink balloons, and other pink tchotchkes.
