NEW YORK, Oct. 13 /PRNewswire/ --

News facts:

  • October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month, symbolizes a sense of community for individuals with breast cancer, however the experiences of those living with metastatic breast cancer (MBC), the most advanced stage of the disease, is rarely discussed.
    • MBC, also known as Stage 4 breast cancer or advanced breast cancer, occurs when cancer has spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body.
    • Thirty percent of people initially diagnosed with earlier stages of breast cancer will eventually develop recurrent or metastatic disease. In the US, an estimated 155,000 people are living with MBC.
    • MBC frequently involves lifelong treatment, such as chemotherapy, radiation and targeted therapies, to control the spread of the disease and alleviate symptoms.

  • According to the recent Pfizer-sponsored BRIDGE Survey (Bridging Gaps, Expanding Outreach - Metastatic Breast Cancer Patient Survey) of 950 people living with MBC, nearly seven in 10 respondents desire increased public awareness of MBC.
    • According to the survey, 53 percent of respondents believe MBC receives too little public attention.
    • Forty-four percent of respondents reported being afraid to talk openly about their experiences, signaling the need for more public dialogue about MBC.
