More than 173,000 women in the United States are living with metastatic breast cancer (MBC), and each has a story to tell. Women with MBC encounter unique challenges, and it is often an important part of their journey to share their stories and connect with others who are living with the disease.
In support of women living with MBC, the MedImmune Specialty Care Division of AstraZeneca recently launched the #MBCStrength photo-sharing campaign. Women with MBC are encouraged to take photos of themselves that highlight their personal journeys and post them on Twitter with the hashtag #MBCStrength. Photos posted through October will be considered for a display in Times Square in New York City on October 13, 2014, Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day.
For more information about the #MBCStrength photo-sharing campaign, visit www.MyMBCStory.com, a site that houses tools and information tailored for women living with MBC. New to the site are personal MBC accounts from Priscilla and Linda: two inspiring women who draw love and support from their family, friends and community.
