BCNA’s Hope & Hurdles Information Guide is designed for people who have been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer.
It has been developed through extensive consultation with people living with metastatic breast cancer, and those who treat and care for them.
Hope & Hurdles is very comprehensive and helpful, with plenty of practical advice and guidance. It is easy to understand and the personal stories from other people who have ‘been there’ themselves are uplifting and encouraging.
The Hope & Hurdles Information Guide is a comprehensive book with information about dealing with your diagnosis, treatments and support options for you and your family.
There are also a number of optional booklets available to download.
Ask your health professional if you are unsure which booklets are suitable for you:
*Note: If your cancer is hormone receptor positive and HER2-positive, the HER2-positive metastatic breast cancer booklet has the most appropriate information for you.
