    I think so! I haven’t made any definite plans but I hope to be there. I went to the Indy event last year and I really enjoyed it. The information and the opportunity to meet other MBC patients was great.

  3. Please keep us posted. We can only hope there will be some encouraging news.

    Would love to go myself. MBC is ground zero, after all, and we all need to focus on it. Could maybe take the train down. Not that far. Hmm.
