Metastatic Breast Cancer Support and Education

  • EMBRACE team

    Clinical coordinators for EMBRACE program

  • One of the goals of the Ending Metastatic Breast Cancer for Everyone (EMBRACE) program is to provide resources and information to help guide patients through many situations and decisions. Throughout their journey, metastatic breast cancer patients in the EMBRACE program receive education and support from expert clinicians, other professionals, and one another.

    An outreach coordinator meets EMBRACE patients on their first day, outlines services available to them, and guides them at every step. These services include integrative therapies, support groups, and peer mentorship.

    We offer patient- and family-centered care, which means that you and your family are the focus of our attention. Your health care team will take the time to listen, understand your needs and preferences, and help give you a better sense of control over your life.

    Educational Programs

    Every year metastatic breast cancer patients and their loved ones gather at Dana-Farber for a day-long forum that includes updates on research and treatment advances; sessions on integrative therapies, nutrition, and other ways to improve quality of life; and discussion groups with other attendees.

    Throughout the year, patients in the program receive additional updates on research and care, through the form of webcasts, web chats, podcasts, and other channels.
