Will Metastatic Breast Cancer Ever Be Curable, and What Will it Take to Get There?

Opening keynote presentation at Living Beyond Breast Cancer's 2019 Conference on Metastatic Breast Cancer with Angela DeMichele, MD, MSCE, of the Abramson Cancer Center at University of Pennsylvania.

The question of finding cures for metastatic breast cancer is omnipresent for everyone living with the disease and for those who care for them. Dr. DeMichele will discuss the complex issues related to curing cancer, including whether research should aim for cure or living with metastatic breast cancer as a chronic disease, or both; how close we are to curing metastatic breast cancer today; what exceptional responders tell us about possible future breakthroughs for more people; and what promising approaches may help us get to a state of cure or chronicity in metastatic disease, or for people with some subtypes of the disease.
