  1. Looking forward to some new ideas from the new leadership. At the national level, many breast cancer groups have realized that the needs of metastatic breast cancer patients are different, and must be addressed differently. The ongoing support and encouragement they need, the information they need, and the care they need as LIFERS, not survivors, is critical to their physical and mental health. I hope to see these needs addressed specifically in the coming year.
