Facebook

The Canadians with Metastatic Breast Cancer Facebook Group is a group just for Canadians living with this disease to feel safe and secure in discussing and assisting one another with the unique issues that come with having metastatic breast cancer while living in Canada. The group gives the Canadian perspective on healthcare, medications, insurance, disability, employment, and more.
