Novartis Canada Creates Site to Support Women with Breast Cancer That Has Spread
Novartis Canada has created a website to support women with breast cancer that has spread to other parts of the body. The site's name, ExtraordinaryMoments.ca, spotlights one of its features — glimpses of extraordinary moments in the lives of patients or their families. Novartis said the site is also aimed at raising awareness of metastatic breast cancer, which usually spreads to the lungs, liver, bones, or brain. The company has developed treatments for breast and other cancers for more than two decades, and supported programs for people living with them. The website broadens it support role by offering patients, their families, and caregivers a list of psychosocial resources. A key goal of the site is to show women with metastatic breast cancer that they are not alone. One way it does this is by featuring extraordinary moments in the lives of women with the disease or the lives of family members who have supported them. “Programs like Extraordinary Moments provide an opportunity to share experiences and educate Canadians about the unique needs of those living with, and affected by, an advanced form of breast cancer,” Winselow Tucker, the general manager of Novartis Oncology Canada, said in a press release. The website also covers therapies that complement traditional treatments,
