This site was founded by three women affected by Metaplastic Breast Cancer (MpBC). When each of us were diagnosed, it was nearly impossible to find information on the web about our disease. Some of the information we found was scary, some difficult to understand. However, we have learned despite the high recurrence rates and large tumors our prognosis is still good. It’s not 100% but most women survive their brush with MpBC. Everything on this site, we learned through our own research, from our MpBC sisters and through our own personal experiences. We are not medical professionals. Our goal is to gather information about MpBC into one easy-to-use website, create a community where patients, caregivers and family members can gather to discuss MpBC and, we hope, attract the attention of researchers to our group. We want to see progress made on a cure for this aggressive form of cancer. Please join us in our quest.

NBCC is currently partnering with BioMarin and Pfizer on three upcoming clinical trials for women with metastatic breast cancer. Intervention offers the potential of improving the length and quality of life for patients already diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.
