Fatigue is one of the most common side effects of metastatic breast cancer treatment. The cancer treatment breaks down the cells in your body to the point of sheer exhaustion. In this video from our friends over at Living Beyond Breast Cancer, four young women living with metastatic breast cancer discuss how fatigue impacts their lives and their strategies for managing it. How does it affect them? What do they do to try to alleviate it? What worked? What didn’t? As with all of the videos in the “Let’s Talk About It” series, courageous women share their stories and experiences to “pay it forward”. If we can learn from those who have gone through it, we can pave the path and help others have an easier road by hearing the experiences of others.
