What It’s Like To Live With Metastatic Breast Cancer

By  | 

Breast cancer awareness is so much more than pink ribbons, painted bras, and feather boas. Whether you’ve personally fought cancer or know someone who has, it’s important to recognize how vital it is to use one’s voice to help educate others and work towards a cure.

Unlike less advanced stages, Metastatic Breast Cancer is breast cancer that has spread to other areas in the body — and according to a 2014 study, it will affect nearly 30% of all breast cancer patients. Watch above as Rahn shares some insight into her life since diagnosis — plus the importance of showing people diagnosed with MBC that they’re not alone.

Help raise much-needed visibility and research funds for people living with MBC by sharing why you #KissThis4MBC on social media. For each post publicly shared with the hashtag, Novartis will donate $15 to MBC research, up to $200,000.
