Stage IV Breast Cancer Resources for Spanish Speakers

 

The Metastatic Breast Cancer Network (MBCN) offers brochures in English and Spanish for people living with  Stage IV breast cancer. Special thanks to our friend Sandra Bishnoi and the Center for Language and Intercultural Communications and the students in SPAN322–Medical Professions, Rice University, Fall 2015, for preparing the Spanish versions.

English Spanish Together

You can download a copy of  Diagnostico: Cancer de mama metatasico .

….and here is the English version: Diagnosis: Metastatic Breast Cancer

MBCN also offers Conozca Los Datos as well as the English version: Get the Facts

 If you’d like hard copies of the above brochures, drop us a line.

This handout offers an overview of MBC in Spanish..  And here are questions you can ask your doctor about MBC.

 Here is a list of nationwide MBC  support groups–the majority of which are in English. But there are are some Spanish speaking Stage IV groups–here is a fairly new one:
