Honestly Spoken

The ABC Global Alliance is partnering with Sanofi to raise awareness of the burden and unmet needs of people living with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) through powerful storytelling, tangible advice and real-world examples.
Honestly Spoken will focus on giving voice to the issues that matter most to MBC patients and caregivers through real, unscripted conversations led by patients, caregivers, healthcare professionals and experts from around the world. No topic, issue or personal experience is off limits as we seek to focus on the unique needs and priorities for the MBC Community.
