Metastatic Breast Cancer Network (MBCN), founded in 2004 by Jane Soyer and Nina Schulman. They are a national, independent, patient-led, nonprofit advocacy group that provides education and information on treatments and coping with the disease.

Why Was October 13th Chosen to be National Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day?
