The disruption of treatments and follow up, the higher risk of complications, the isolation and loneliness, all increase the burden of distress that breast cancer patients already experience due to their condition and raise questions that most of the time remain unanswered. To provide support to breast cancer patients, with a special focus on advanced/metastatic breast cancer patients, the ABC Global Alliance has brought together a multidisciplinary panel of experts who will answer questions posed by patients themselves.
