Metaplastic Breast Cancer Foundation
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.
