Being diagnosed with cancer is a life-altering experience. For the 175,000 women living with metastatic breast cancer or M-B-C, it means learning to live with cancer for the rest of your life, often with a lack of support or resources to address your needs. This October, go beyond pink to show your support for those living with metastatic breast cancer and educate others about this disease.Join us in New York City on October 13 to recognize the women living with M-B-C featured on the Times Square billboard, and learn more about metastatic breast cancer at life beyond pink dot com, a new website that features educational information to help those living with M-B-C actively manage their journey. Christine Garrett stresses the importance of understanding what's going on in your body to best manage your M-B-C journey. CUT: (Garrett) Ask questions until you understand. Drill down until you reach the level that it makes sense to you because in order to make decisions and in order to have some courage to walk forward on your journey, you have to be comfortable with what happens.SCRIPT: To learn more about metastatic breast cancer and how you can go beyond pink, visit life beyond pink dot com, a site developed by AstraZeneca.
