Breast cancer is the most common cancer affecting women all over the world. Although women above 40 are deemed to be at higher risk of developing breast cancer, the disease sometimes strikes younger women too hence no woman is completely free of risk.
No matter what the prognosis may be for a woman with breast cancer, the news is never easy to accept. And while successful treatment and survival rates are generally positive for women diagnosed and treated early, in many cases diagnosis and treatment is delayed due to poor awareness and barriers to treatment.
For women diagnosed with advanced breast cancer (also known as ABC) – the cancer cells are no longer confined to the breast tissues, but have spread to other parts of the body as well – the news is even harder to deal with.
When a woman is diagnosed with breast cancer, it does not only affect her – it affects her family and friends, too.

I really had to accept the fact that — as a Stage 4 patient — hospitals and necessary medical attentions are never far from my life. It will be a lifelong involvement. But I have great moral and family support from my husband, parents, and family members.
