Unsung heroes: women living with metastatic breast cancer

For most women who are diagnosed with breast cancer that involves their breast and lymph nodes, once they are treated, their cancer never returns. Women with metastatic breast cancer are those whose breast cancer has spread to other organs such as bone, liver or lung. Metastatic breast cancer is very treatable but in most cases it is not cured.  In most cases, metastatic breast cancer cannot be cured.
