Thank you for participating in this survey. By taking part, you will help ensure that we capture all of the collateral damage experienced by people living with metastatic breast cancer (MBC).* We will use your input to develop a comprehensive questionnaire that will be released this summer as part of the Health of Women (HOW) Study™. That questionnaire will help us scientifically measure and document the true extent of collateral damage from MBC, which will then allow us to develop recommendations for improving quality of life for MBC patients.
For the purposes of this survey, we are using the Merriam-Webster definition of collateral damage: injury inflicted on something other than an intended target. We interpret this to mean the unintended negative consequences caused by MBC and its treatment.
Your responses will help us ensure that we don’t leave anything that is important to you out of the upcoming questionnaire. We expect the survey to take 15 minutes on average to complete.

*Please complete this survey if you have a diagnosis of MBC, based on the following definition:
“Advanced,” “stage IV,” or “metastatic” breast cancer is invasive breast cancer that has spread beyond the breasts and nearby lymph nodes to other organs of the body, such as the lungs, distant lymph nodes, skin, bones, liver, or brain. http://www.breastcancer.org/symptoms/diagnosis/staging#stage4
