Help transform our understanding of metastatic breast cancer.

If you have metastatic breast cancer, join a nationwide movement of patients, doctors, and scientists by sharing your tumor samples, your medical information, and your voice. Together, we can speed the development of future therapies.

If you have metastatic breast cancer, you have the power to accelerate cancer research in a way that no one else can.

Your tumor and medical records could unlock discoveries.

The unique genetic information in your cancer could hold the key to rapid advances in cancer treatment. By looking at the DNA in your samples, researchers can make discoveries that will ultimately lead to a better understanding and faster advances in the treatment of metastatic breast cancer. This information will be invaluable to cancer research for years to come.


Become part of the research movement.
Have a direct impact on the future.

By saying “Count Me In” you will partner with leading research institutes, hospitals, and patient advocacy groups by sharing part of your stored tumor tissue and copies of your medical records.

Here’s how you can participate

Step 1

Step 1. Tell us about yourself

Click “Count Me In” and complete a simple online form to tell us about yourself and your cancer. We will be starting with some focused studies in metastatic breast cancer and expanding over time based on what we learn from you. We are asking all patients with metastatic breast cancer to say “Count Me In” and fill out the form so that we can use the information you provide to plan our next studies.

Step 2

Step 2. Give us permission to collect your samples and data

After you fill out the online survey, we will ask you to fill out an online consent form that requests your permission to obtain copies of your medical records and some of your stored tumor tissue. We’ll also send you a simple kit to collect a saliva sample. We will do the rest — we’ll contact your doctors and hospitals to obtain copies of your medical records and a portion of your stored tumor samples.

Step 3

Step 3. Learn with us along the way

We are excited to learn with you! Throughout the project, we will provide you with regular updates about the status of the project and share any discoveries that you have enabled us to make. We also may ask you additional questions about your experience to help with future studies — we want to hear what’s important to you.

The time to act is now

We are asking you to say “Count Me In” and donate something invaluable to cancer research. Your tissue samples and medical information will be used for transformative genomic studies that will ultimately lead to a better understanding and faster advances in the treatment of metastatic breast cancer.

MBCN is thrilled to support the Metastatic Breast Cancer Project. By sharing tissue and medical histories, patients can play an active, key role in helping researchers unlock the mysteries of metastatic disease.
