Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day - 13th October 2022
BCNA announced today that there are over 10,000 people living with metastatic breast cancer in Australia. This figure is only an estimate because Australia’s cancer registries are currently only mandated to report the number of people diagnosed with cancer (incidence) and how many people die from cancer (mortality). This means we currently don’t count people who are living with metastatic breast cancer.
