May 2024

Welcome to the fourth year of Metastatic May. It’s our month-long campaign where we share content from people living with metastatic breast cancer, professionals who work with us, news about drugs, treatment lines, mental health and patient stories.

March 2024

February is always an emotional time for me as I (Jo Taylor) was diagnosed with primary breast cancer 17 years ago. 7 years later I was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer. I have now been living with metastatic breast cancer for 10 years. Whilst that is a huge milestone and some people may want to celebrate this event, I know that only 26% of people who are living with MBC actually live 5 years after their diagnosis. In fact, there are no figures after that so we don’t know how many people are living 10 years after diagnosis. One thing I know, it’s a privilege to be still alive.

February 2024

We have been busy again and there is a short report about our attendance at the UKIBCS – UK Interdisiplinary Breast Cancer Symposium. This is usually held every two years by Breast Cancer Now but this was the first one since the Pandemic and it was nice to see old and new faces at the conference. More about this below.

December 2023 & January 2024

A big thank you to all of our Volunteers and Supporters this year. We have achieved so much together. For anyone who would like to get involved in METUPUK, please just let us know as the charity is run entirely by volunteers. Thinking of everyone at Christmas and wishing everyone a peaceful New Year.

June 2023

We went straight from our campaign month of Metastatic May, into even more hard work hosting a first of its kind Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference in Manchester on 13th June. We are sharing some of the highlights from Metastatic May here and will then share a special edition in the coming weeks about the Conference.

Metastatic May 2023

We have started our Metastatic May Campaign. This month we will be sharing content about issues and awareness, treatment lines and drug access, mental health, living with metastatic breast cancer along with patient stories.
