Metastatic Breast Cancer Dinner Series

The Metastatic Breast Cancer Dinner Series provides a forum for people living with metastatic breast cancer to discuss the latest in research, treatment, and symptom management with local health experts, in a small group setting.  Dinner is free, and registration is available to people living with stage IV/ metastatic breast cancer and, if space is available, their caregiver.  Pre-registration is mandatory.

If you are unable to attend Dinner Series events in person, we will live-stream the presentation on our Facebook page (@KomenOregon). Individuals watching via the Facebook live video will be able to ask questions in the comments section, and they will be answered at the end of the speaker’s presentation.

Travel Assistance:

Thanks to a grant from Pfizer, need-based financial assistance is available to individuals living with metastatic breast cancer, to cover the cost of transportation and/or lodging  to attend Komen Oregon & SW Washington metastatic breast cancer education events.  Assistance will be awarded on a first-come, first-served basis.  If a large number of individuals request travel assistance, priority will be given to those who have not received prior assistance through a travel grant, and individuals travelling the furthest distance.  Download the application for additional details.
