At Living Beyond Breast Cancer, we understand that you may experience obstacles that prevent you from attending a national conference that isn’t within an easy driving distance or close to public transportation. That’s why we’re bringing parts of the conference to you through free, live webstreams!

Join us on Saturday, September 27, from the comfort of your own home. Watch our morning and closing plenary sessions and ask our experts your questions! Through our webstreaming, you will be able to watch:

Morning Sessions 9:30 – 10:45 a.m. (ET)

  • Triple-Negative Breast Cancer: What We Know, What We Are Learning, How You Can Help with Rita Nanda, MD (presented in partnership with Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation)
  • Hormone Receptor-Positive or HER2+ Breast Cancer: What’s New in Targeted Therapies with Virginia Borges, MD, MMSc
  • Metastatic Breast Cancer: Treatment Strategies with Clifford A. Hudis, MD

Closing Sessions 4 – 5 p.m. (ET)

  • Thriving! A Discussion on Living Well—Body, Mind and Soul with Virginia Borges, MD, MMSc Lisa McLaughlin, MSW, LSW, OSW-C, and Marisa C. Weiss, MD

Using live video streams to connect to our conference may be important to you; while you can’t attend in person, you can still get the unique medical information and updates you seek from some of the leading experts in breast cancer care.

We recognized the value of this during our Annual Conference for Women Living with Metastatic Breast Cancer, held this past April. Through YouTube Live, hundreds of viewers online were able to see Julie R. Gralow, MD, discuss how far we’ve come in managing metastatic breast cancer. Online viewers could also watch Generosa Grana, MD, FACP, talk about living fully and managing symptoms and side effects of stage IV disease and treatment. Viewers tweeted and text messaged their questions, participating in the conference as if they were sitting in the crowd.

Our conference this Saturday is about you. You can join us and others who share the experience of coping with breast cancer.

  1. I am 1 year & 7 months from breastfeeding cancer treatment. My cancer was double positive & HER2 negative. I was stage ll invasive, aggressive with 6 lymph nodes removed one with cancer cells. After a lumpectomy where two masses were removed from my left breast, I had 4 chemotherapy treatments followed by 30 radiation treatments. I am now at this time cancer free. I would love to be able to share my experience with other people who have been through the same experience. I know there are much worse types of breast cancer than me & sometimes I feel that because of that, my cancer is kind of over looked or that it’s considered a jv type of breast cancer.

  2. That is interesting I had no idea that breastfeeding would not be interrupted with breast cancer, that is something interesting as I would had thought the cancer could had been spread from the milk of the person with cancer, something I will have to look into one day
