Our Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference provides you with the information, support and practical resources you need to make decisions for your physical and emotional health. Gather with hundreds of other women and men to learn more about living well – physically, emotionally and spiritually – with metastatic breast cancer. At the conference you will find sessions on the latest medical updates, communicating with loved ones, caregiving, scientific research and clinical trials, food as medicine, living with uncertainty and more!
Join us for presentations and panel discussions on topics ranging from the latest medical updates to emotional support and living well with a metastatic diagnosis, all while connecting with others with similar needs and interests.

Our expert, William J. Gradishar, MD, FASCO, FACP, will discuss trials like KATHERINE, SOLAR-1 and Impassion-130 that could lead to new treatments. You’ll also learn about studies that could help doctors recommend the right treatments at the right times in early and metastatic breast cancer, whether it’s surgery, radiation therapy or hormonal therapy.
Learn what these options could mean today and tomorrow, and what information you need to talk about your treatment choices with your healthcare providers.
Our webinar begins with a 45-minute conversation with our expert about the latest medical updates from the 2018 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. During the last 15 minutes, ask questions or make comments during the interactive Q&A.

Are there times when you feel overwhelmed when doing breast cancer advocacy and outreach volunteer work?
Learn about self-care strategies and how you can prevent burnout as an LBBC Leadership Volunteer.

Our guest speaker will be Pamela Ginsberg, PhD, a licensed psychologist, who has 25 years of experience working with the cancer community.
Whether you are recently diagnosed with breast cancer, are in treatment or years beyond it, you have questions. The 2018 Living Beyond Breast Cancer Conference (LBBC) addresses them. Leading medical professionals, people affected by breast cancer, and caregivers share their experiences, knowledge and concerns with one another. We’ll learn about the treatments and lifestyle options that can help us live our best lives – and have some fun along the way.
LBBC’s Reach & Raise is not your typical charity walk or run – we’ve put a twist on it. By having everybody participate together in an all-levels, large-group yoga activity, we’ve created a community-building celebration that combines yoga, music, our Healthy Living Expo and personal stories that inspire us all while supporting people in your community who are affected by breast cancer.
Rest assured LBBC’s Reach & Raise is designed so that anyone can participate, regardless of age, physical fitness or previous experience with yoga.
Cancer-related fatigue can take a toll on every aspect of your life – your mind, body and lifestyle. Seeing friends and family do the things you enjoy in life or in social media posts can make living with fatigue even more distressing because you may feel left out or isolated. Unlike day-to-day exhaustion, cancer-related fatigue impacts more than just your ability to get out of bed in the morning.
During this program our expert, Lillie D. Shockney, RN, BS, MAS, ONN-CG, a nationally- recognized oncology nurse, will discuss practical and medical methods to ease cancer-related fatigue. Ms. Shockney will also offer tools to cope with the social and emotional impacts of living with less energy than before.
A panel of young women with breast cancer will also share their stories and discuss the realities of fatigue for young women living with breast cancer in the age of social media.
A Q&A session will follow the presentation.
