The City of Houston has recognized today, Oct. 13, as Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day, a day to honor those dedicated to helping individuals impacted by the disease and improving outcomes for metastatic breast cancer.
City officials recognized the day with an official proclamation presented to local organizations including Susan G. Komen® Houston, the Lester and Sue Smith Breast Center at Baylor College of Medicine, and Theresa’s Research Foundation yesterday at City Hall.
Metastatic breast cancer is one of the deadliest forms of the disease. It is caused by the spread of cancer cells beyond the breast to other parts of the body.
