The Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation launched the opening survey for the Metastatic Breast Cancer Collateral Damage Project. If you have metastatic breast cancer, you can play a role in improving quality of life for people with this disease by taking 15 minutes to complete a five-question survey.
The survey is a critical first step in documenting the full extent of collateral
damage caused by the disease or its treatment. The long-term goal is to develop a
set of recommendations that will improve the quality of life for people living with
metastatic breast cancer.
TAKE THE SURVEY
Currently, Medicare and many private insurance policies fail to cover the costs of the daily compression supplies people with lymphedema need to control their swelling. People who can’t afford these supplies are left with worsening lymphedema, which can lead to infections and even long-term disability.
