We are pleased to announce that Susan G. Komen Michigan has partnered with Susan G. Komen Greater
Detroit in an effort to educate the public and advocate for the metastatic breast cancer community. Metastatic
breast cancer (MBC), also known as stage IV, is not a type of breast cancer but instead the most advanced
stage of all types of breast cancer. There are over 150,000 women and men currently living with MBC in the U.S.


With a grant provided by Pfizer, we are continuing our advocacy campaign in support of the MBC community.
The outreach series was kicked off with a lunch for the metastatic breast cancer community on
October 13th, 2018, also known as National Metastatic Breast Cancer Day.

The dinner on June 27, 2019, will continue to provide fellowship and education around Metastatic Breast Cancer. Our special guest this evening will be Dr. Iman Mohamed from West Michigan Cancer Center in Kalamazoo. Dr. Mohamed is a medical oncologist with 33 years’ experience in clinical medicine. She earned her medical degree at Kuwait University in Kuwait City, Kuwait and a Master of Public Health degree through Northwest Ohio Consortium of Public Health Programs with a focus on health education. After obtaining specialty training at the Royal College of Physicians in London (UK), she completed residency at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Pontiac, Michigan and a fellowship in medical oncology at William Beaumont Hospital in Royal Oak, Michigan. Dr. Mohamed is board certified in internal medicine and medical oncology. Her clinical focus is breast cancer of all stages in addition to offering consultations in cancer genetics and risk reduction. She will be discussing current clinical advancements in the treatment of Metastatic Breast Cancer.
