A breast cancer diagnosis is difficult for anyone to take in. However it’s easy to forget about the impact it can have on close family and friends. This may include a partner mother sister child or an employer or work colleague to name but a few.
Being diagnosed with secondary breast cancer can affect the people around you in different ways whether it’s a partner family or friends.
Earlier in the year we made a video about talking to people about secondary breast cancer. The video features Tara Beaumont a clinical nurse specialist and Marie who was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer five years ago.
The first in-depth study of people with secondary breast cancer has found that current care is inadequate.
The study which was published in BMJ Supportive & Palliative Care followed the experiences of 10 women with secondary breast cancer aged between 40 and 78. The study was part of a previously published survey of 235 women by Dr Elizabeth Reed for Breast Cancer Care.
