Inaugural Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference Was a Success!

ST. LOUIS- March 2, 2020 – Komen Missouri hosted its inaugural Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference on February 22 at the Il Monastero Banquet Center. The conference was a huge success and we are proud to have provided information, support and a place to connect with others living with metastatic breast cancer, their caregivers and their providers.

In addition, the conference sought to bring together diverse perspectives that influence the lives of metastatic patients, including breast cancer survivors, researchers, providers, insurers and policymakers. We are so proud and thankful that our conference has benefited the lives of the people that attended, and we hope to see them thrive with the continued support of Komen as well as the other individuals that they connected with while attending.

Thank you so much to everyone who attended and helped to make the MBC Conference such a success!


Big thanks to our generous sponsors for making this conference possible:
