Metaplastic Breast Cancer (MBC or MpBC) is a rare form of cancer. When I was diagnosed on October 9th 2009 I thought I was dead. My life was over and metaplastic cancer would kill me. I started searching on the Internet and found girls with this cancer. I contacted them and several had died. I was devasted and I thought Metaplastic BC was going to kill me. So in 2010, I started a Facebook Group it was called MetaplasticBC. Then after that, I launched a public group Metaplastic Breast Cancer on Facebook and also a Remembering the girls who died from Metaplastic Breast Cancer. I thought that if I died, I would help as many girls as I could whilst alive. I would provide support and as much information as possible for anyone who needed and wanted it. I have had a wonderful team of admins including Judy, Cari, Jennifer, Deanna, Kim, Jacomi who have been strong advocates of #metaplastic.
Well 8 years later, I am still here. I am still alive and I am so grateful that I am alive! Metaplastic Breast Cancer is rare, but more and more of us girls are alive and living. This is important and essential. I want to thank everyone currently on our Facebook Group, sister groups and pages or anyone with Metaplastic Breast Cancer. There is hope for all of us and these 8 years have been tough - but worth it. My cancer friends really are my cancer sisters.
