I hope you are doing well 😊
The various symptoms and manifestations of metastatic breast cancer do not have only a significant impact on the quality of life and state of mind of patients, but also on their relatives. So, let's talk about it together!
- Which aspects of your daily life (hobbies, work, chores, etc.) has been most impacted by the patient’s metastatic breast cancer?
- How often do you think about the patient’s metastatic breast cancer? What are some of your most common thoughts about it?
- How comfortable are you talking about the patient’s metastatic breast cancer with her?
Do not hesitate to share your experience and advice, we are here to exchange and support each other!

I talked with my husband about my cancer pretty much before all my chemo treatments. We don't talk every day about it, but it is a discussion when doing some family planning. It has gotten easier to talk about. At first I would cry a bunch, now it is part of normal life. It put a lot of stress on the family, he did have to pick up more of the chores and handling of the kids. I am so appreciative of him.
Thanks for sharing. We had a few more members pass the screener. I will tag them here.
