The Storm Riders Network is a one-stop tool for metastatic breast cancer (MBC) patients and survivors, co-survivors and caretakers. It is for anyone interested in learning more about the resources available to those riding out the storm that is breast cancer. Much of the information collected here is geared towards the metastatic community, though anyone affected by cancer will benefit. The Storm Riders Network aims to remove these barriers with a twofold approach: 1) to provide the most up-to-date scientifically accurate information about breast cancer and its treatments, and 2) to distill this information into a digestible format that is easy to understand.
