Press Release: TBCT Joint Letter on Metastatic Cancer

October as breast cancer awareness month may have come to a close, but the Transforming Breast Cancer Together (TBCT) initiative remains deeply committed to the fight against breast cancer to ensure equitable and sustainable cancer prevention, early detection and diagnosis, treatment as well as the highest quality of life for cancer patients, their families and carers. This fight includes all breast cancer patients, including patients with metastatic or advanced breast cancer. TBCT emphasises that the needs of metastatic breast cancer patients should be considered more strongly and move beyond the context of palliative care only. As such, TBCT initiative spear-headed a joint letter calling on policymakers to ensure that the European Parliament’s Special Committee on Beating Cancer (BECA) report and the European Commission’s Europe’s Beating Cancer Plan reflect the special attention metastatic or advanced cancer deserves. TBCT urges policymakers to consider the multitude of specific needs of metastatic or advanced cancer patients and make sure that no patient is left behind. We encourage other interested parties to sign on to our letter on this important matter. Please contact us if your organisation would like to sign our letter.
