On October 13th, Extend a Helping Hand to Women Diagnosed with Stage 4 Cancer

October 13th is a time to remind everyone in the country why it’s important to learn about metastatic breast cancer. Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day was created to educate the public about the most advanced stage of cancer. It also encourages us to support women living with it.

In case you didn’t know, metastatic breast cancer is considered to be Stage 4 cancer. At this stage, the only option left is to ease the onslaught of cancer and its side effects. Patients are usually treated with chemo, surgeries, and clinical trials of new drugs, as well as palliative care, to improve their quality of life.

While the survival rates for breast cancer have gradually increased over the years, this cancer type continues to claim thousands of lives each year. These were mostly the lives of individuals whose cancer had already spread to other parts of their bodies. Unfortunately, this final phase is no longer treatable, and the odds of beating cancer are extremely low.

Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day aims to address the problems faced by affected women and their loved ones. At the same time, it urges us to extend our helping hands to our fellow Americans who have been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.

 

How to Observe This Special Day

Educating yourself on this cancer category is one way to observe Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day. Research online, read journal articles or watch documentaries about metastatic breast cancer. You can also watch a heartwarming film or read a novel about people grappling with breast cancer.

Doing volunteer work is also an option you might want to consider. Check if there are cancer organizations or facilities that accept volunteers in your area.

Attending a fundraising event is another meaningful way to observe this special day. From yard sales and barbecue parties to galas, there are plenty of choices for everybody. If nothing sparks your interest, you can create your own fundraiser!

Lastly, if you know a woman with metastatic breast cancer, pay her a visit. Cheer her up with positive words. Let her know that you’re always ready to lend a hand, or simply listen to whatever she wants to say.
