We received 760 total survey responses (699 online and 61 mobile) that revealed MBC patients felt their own family and friends do not understand the difference between early stage and advanced breast cancer. They also acknowledged that family and friends don't always know what to say or how to help. People living with MBC shared that it’s the little things in life that make the biggest difference – sending a card or just making a simple phone call to check-in.
