During the month of October, the breast cancer community traditionally rallies together to applaud those who have beaten the disease. They wear a pink ribbon and many think they are cured.
We know better. We are the 155,000 men and women in the United States who are living with metastatic breast cancer.
The focus is on the pink ribbon - not on those of us living with this disease. We are kept hidden away... no one wants to mention the M word. We scare people! Sometimes, we scare ourselves!
We at MBCN believe that to change the status-quo, we must all be advocates..and advocacy comes in many forms.
