I have just been diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer & trying to come to terms with everything. Starting my first round of Chemo this coming Wednesday & feeling overwhelmed. Hopping to hear positive feedback from others who have been or are going through the same experience.

    Hi @Lizmoore, I'm sorry you need to be here but you'll find lots of support, and caring people
    Are you aware that there is a private group called Living With Metastatic Breast Cancer. You can request to join

    Of recent times I've read of women living for many years with metastatic BC. 

    Do you have supportive family and friends around you? Whilst they won't "get it" they will want to be there for you.
    It's a big diagnosis to get your head around. Thinking of you

    I am so blessed to be surround by my beautiful family and friends, there support has been amazing.

    I have tried to join the private group Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer but have had no response. I would really love to join the group and read how others cope in this situation.
