Event description
Spreading awareness of, advocating for, and sharing resources to those living with Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC).

About this Event

Komen Michigan has partnered with Komen Greater Detroit 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 is 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 and there is no cure.

We will hear from a local Komen researcher, Dr. Aki Morikawa, about her research into MBC. Additionally, there will be two breakout sessions where MBC patients and their caregivers can learn about useful tools regarding burnout, complementary therapies, sexuality and intimacy, and mental health.

This event is free to the community, if you are a healthcare provider or participating on behalf of an organization, a $10 donation is requested.

Transportation may be available to those who need it- please request "Transportation" during the registration process, and a representative will contact you to assist.
