My passion project for October Awareness Month 2018 is to educate and motivate, get more than just the "awareness" message.

- Stage IV (also known as Metastatic) has NO CURE
- MBC (Metastatic Breast Cancer) is cancer that has spread outside the breast to other organs, such as brain, liver, lungs, or brain. These tumors are Breast Cancer that reside in these organs not a different cancer. The cells of the tumors act and look like breast cancer and need to be treated as breast cancer
- When someone has Breast Cancer with "mets" to their liver or brain - it is NOT brain or liver cancer now - it is still Breast Cancer that has spread. This is also Stage IV.
