Twenty-five leading women speak out against the most deadly form of breast cancer

Metastatic triple-negative breast cancer (mTNBC), is the most severe and difficult type of breast cancer. This is a relatively unknown disease that affects approximately 5,000 young Spanish women every year. There is no cure for mTNCC, and only 12% survive five years. This data shows how critical it is to improve patients' survival rates and quality of their lives. The biopharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences was faced with the challenge of raising awareness and making visible a disease that has largely gone untreated. They created the first "Coalition of Experts" to address the needs of metastatic triple-negative breast cancer patients.

Maria Rio, vice president of Gilead and general director, participated in the presentation. This initiative is led by more 20 women and thought leaders in their respective fields such as science, politics, or associative movement. They have examined the objective to address and make visible the challenges this type of cancer poses during the care and personal journeys of patients.

Despite advancements in other types of tumors, mTNCC has not seen much progress in the last few years. Women with this type of tumor face poor prognosis and have only had limited effective treatment options. This subtype of cancer has chemotherapy as the main treatment option. However, it is not likely to survive and does not respond well.

Pilar Fernandez of the Metastatic Breast Cancer Association insists that it is important to know what is going on because there are no issues that aren't being discussed. Many women with metastatic triple-negative breast cancer are in a difficult situation. There are few options for treatment and they have a short life expectancy. We believe there must be a huge social movement to raise awareness about the current situation and make the new innovations available to everyone.

The Coalition also stressed the importance of raising awareness about the need for support measures for women with this type of cancer. It also encouraged research to improve the treatment of this disease, particularly for those who have a poor prognosis such as locally advanced tumors or metastasis to other parts of their bodies.

They are the ones who give voice to more than 5,000 women with metastatic triple-negative breast cancer.
