Thank you for giving hope. And thank you for believing in the promise that together we will end breast cancer forever.

Raising Awareness of Metastatic Breast Cancer; One Woman’s Personal Journey

Stephanie Carroll is fighting for her life. She was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013 when she was 32-years-old. Stephanie wants to raise awareness of metastatic breast cancer, a disease that originates in the breast but spreads to other organs. “I am learning now that I have to live with metastatic breast cancer. It’s still scary because there isn’t necessarily a cure because it continues to spread.” Click here to learn more.

Access to Breast Cancer Diagnosis Act Introduced in Senate

Under current law, insurers are only required to cover 100 percent of the cost of screening mammograms, pushing no costs onto patients. But if that mammogram reveals an abnormality, patients then must pay out-of-pocket for any additional medically-necessary diagnostic imaging. Those tests can involve an ultrasound, breast MRI or diagnostic mammogram to determine if a biopsy is required. Senators Roy Blunt (R-MO) and Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) have introduced the Access to Breast Cancer Diagnosis (ABCD) Act. The legislation would eliminate out-of-pocket costs for medically-necessary diagnostic imaging. Click here to learn more.

Can Researchers Outsmart Breast Cancer Recurrence and Metastasis?

While we don’t know how many people will have a recurrence of breast cancer, we do know that about 94 percent of people with stage IV, or metastatic breast cancer, were previously diagnosed with an early-stage breast cancer that later recurred. The risk varies from person to person and can happen at any time. Click here to read more.
