How Breast Cancer Spreads
Most cases of breast cancer are now caught before it goes beyond the breast. About 10% of all breast tumors are not found until after they have shed cells that traveled to other parts of the body. Metastatic cancer is more difficult - but not impossible - to treat. Women with metastatic disease are living longer, thanks to better detection and targeted treatments.

Metastatic Breast Cancer - Statistics, Diagnosis, Treatment
Dr. William Gradishar explains that a diagnosis of metastatic breast cancer can be treated to extend life and create the best quality of life possible with this condition. Dr. Gradishar is an oncologist at Feinberg School Medicine at Northwestern University in Chicago, and was familiar with Maggie Daley's case.
