I am putting together a page of metastatic breast cancer (MBC) resources for the blog. Do you have a favorite site about MBC (or a general site that has a section for MBC)? Please post a link in the Comments and I’ll see if it can be included.
Sites can be:
- forums/discussion boards
- (something I haven’t thought of)
If you have sites that are not in the USA and/or are not in English, please let me know about them, too! We are an international community!
Thanks so much for your help.

I have initiated (in 2010) a French speaking Facebook support group for agressive breast cancer like inflammatory breast cancer (IBC), and also metastatic breast cancer (stage III & IV), we are from Québec (Canada), France, Belgium, Mauritius, and more. Informations and supportives women to help going through difficult times.
And my personnal blog : http://cancerinflammatoiredusein.wordpress.com/
Thanks very much, Suzanne. This is wonderful.
http://www.breastcancer.org is a great site for all things breast cancer, but the best is its discussion boards at http://community.breastcancer.org/ which covers every imaginable topic on cancer. If it doesn’t, you can start your own thread. And of course, they have discussion boards just for those with metastatic breast cancer.
Excellent, Eileen! Thanks so much!
