Friday, October 13, 2017 is National Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) Awareness Day.
The day was established by the U.S. House and Senate in 2009 as an annual observance on October 13.
This is breast cancer which has spread to other parts of the body (metastasized) to most likely the lungs, liver, bones or brain. This is also known as Stage IV cancer.
Early detection through screenings is a possibly useful tool to detect breast cancer.
