Mother’s Day can be particularly emotional for women living with metastatic breast cancer (MBC) and their families. This Mother’s Day and throughout the month of May, join AstraZeneca in supporting these women and the MBC community by visiting My+Story at www.MyMBCStory.com and planting a flower in the Inspiration Garden. In support of this initiative and others, AstraZeneca will donate to breast cancer organizations for their continued support of women living with MBC. Help us reach our 500-flower goal by May 31!

New to the site is Jewel Crawford Ajibade’s personal account of her own MBC journey. A wife, a mother, and a friend to many, Jewel is no stranger to breast cancer. Her mom and aunt both lived with the disease, and dealing with her own diagnosis requires strength each day. Despite the challenges of managing the disease, Jewel has directed her energy into patient advocacy work with LBBC and has become a source of inspiration for others. Read her story here.

The My+Story site also houses tools and information tailored for women living with MBC, including treatment options and tips on disease management. To reinforce the power of imagery and the importance of capturing memories, visitors may also create a customized, hard copy photobook of personal stories that may be shared with loved ones. The Web site is designed to connect the MBC community with the information they need and links to patient support groups that have specific programs for patients with MBC.
