Thank you for following this four-part series about Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) entitled “Hear My Voice.” It is such a critically important topic to all of the women and men who are living with the disease. It is also critical to the family members of those who have lost loved ones to MBC over the years. We all know women and men who have earned their angel wings, and we are strengthened and inspired by the legacies they left behind. Finally, it is important to our children, because we want them to inherit a breast cancer free world. We want their world to be free of deaths from breast cancer and diagnoses of it.

Living Beyond Breast Cancer
The lens you look through significantly affects how you interpret something. I have chosen to look through the lens of MBC with a positive viewpoint instead of a negative one, and this is what I’d like to share with you today. My hope is that my thoughts will encourage you no matter what you are going through on your particular journey.
Today’s post is only a fraction of the wealth of knowledge I gained from the Thriving Together Conference. As a Hear My Voice trainee, I’ll be completing at least two outreach activities in the coming year specifically to increase awareness and education about metastatic breast cancer. One of my activities is to write a four-part series on this blog entitled Hear My Voice. What you have just read is the introduction to this series. In the coming weeks, I’ll address issues like men and breast cancer, the invisibility of people with MBC, resources for people with MBC, and what role YOU can play personally in the epidemic of metastatic breast cancer. It’s going to be an information-packed series, so I invite you to follow it and share it with others.
