Abstract

Life expectancy for women with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) has increased as advances have been made in treatment and management. Consequently, when measuring the burden of MBC, womens' experiences, quality of life, and gaps in information and support needs should be considered. The BRIDGE Survey (Bridging Gaps, Expanding Outreach – Metastatic Breast Cancer Patient Survey) was conducted in the US, Europe, Latin America and Africa to evaluate patients' (pts) own perceptions of living with MBC; results are presented here.
