It's the everyday moments
that matter

Whether you are living with or know somebody living with secondary breast cancer (SBC), this website is dedicated to giving you support and knowledge to have better, more informed conversations with your healthcare professionals.

Whether you have had a good day or a bad one, every moment matters for those living with secondary breast cancer. The appointments with your oncologist where you learn something new. They count. The days where you find the strength to get out of bed, if only to sit up and read for a while. They count, too. Or those evenings spent with your loved ones, after a tough day you took head on. That certainly counts. Every seemingly insignificant moment: a cup of tea or a smile shared with somebody. These are all Moments That Count.

Moments That Count has been developed to support patients, family and friends of those living with SBC, whatever stage of the journey they are on.

You know you best

Make your next appointment count

Your healthcare team is your best resource throughout your treatment. Talk openly and often with them about your doubts, questions and concerns. It might make you feel more in control if you take some time to plan for your appointment. Making notes before, during and after can help you retain information and make the most of your visits. We have developed a guide to support you in having these conversations with some tips to help you get the information you need.
