Ending Metastatic Breast Cancer for Everyone (EMBRACE) is the name of a research study at Dana-Farber. This study began in 2009, with the aim of learning more about the biology of advanced breast cancer as well as the treatment experiences of patients living with it.
Each patient's progress is tracked by a study coordinator through medical records, and the information collected is used to help doctors understand more about the long-term journey of the metastatic breast cancer patients in this group. Investigators hope the study will bring them closer to finding a cure for metastatic breast cancer.
The study is not sponsored by drug companies, and patients are not required to be on any drug trials.
