h MBC will come out on October 13 to learn about them."

Additional speakers will be Amy Tiersten, MD, Associate Professor of Oncology at NYU; and Stella Lymberis, MD, of the Department of Radiation Oncology, at NYU Medical Center.

MBCN seeks to raise awareness through the support of the community and events that focus on MBC. According to Larry Norton, MD, Deputy Physician-in-Chief for Breast Cancer Programs at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, "The MBCN has made significant strides toward demystifying metastatic breast cancer and informing people of their management options, realistic avenues of help and hope, and the new opportunities afforded by advancing science. Information leads to knowledge leads to rational action: that's the best antidote to fear."

"Living with [metastatic breast] cancer as a chronic illness is living with uncertainty, but life is always uncertain," said Oni Faida Lampley, author of the play Tough Titty and New York City MBC patient. "I'm glad we have conferences like the MBCN Regional Conference here in New York. We need to come together to discuss our feelings, needs, and ways to constructively engage with the fact of cancer in our lives."

About Metastatic Breast Cancer

According to the American Cancer Society, MBC is defined as the spread of a malignant tumor from its original site (the breast) to other parts of the body. Patients with MBC need the support and recognition from the public and the larger breast cancer community in their fight for treatments to extend life as the search for a cure continues. According to the American Cancer Society, 178,480 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007. It is estimated that 150,000 women in the US are currently living with MBC.
