Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness

Today is Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day. So over on twitter, I am sharing a tweet about MBC every 15 minutes. This was a great idea started by a friend from twitter (who also is responsible for compiling this list of information!). Over here, I'm just listing all the tweets/links I and others will be sharing over on twitter. I hope you'll take the time to learn more about MBC. Women are suffering from this, and I've learned recently that so many people are unaware!

Sink the pink, start to think! Today is Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day. Learn

MBC accounts for ~40,000 deaths annually in U.S.

  1. Prayers for you, and my daughter, too, as she has tumors removed from her breast this morning in S. Carolina.

  2. Wait, do YOU have MBC? I am unsure of which type of cancer you have...
