Our lives and experiences, our support and our research differ from that associated with the traditional cancer “survivor” and thus we do not use that term. Instead we refer to ourselves as “METAvivors.” We are a thriving community of people living against the odds every day, fighting for the research that could save our lives. What is Metastatic (Stage 4) Breast Cancer?
Over 122 days Joe will run 3,845 miles, transiting twelve states and meeting with metastasis researchers, metastatic patients and family members all in support of METAvivor and metastatic breast cancer research.
METAvivor is thrilled to announce the award of four research grants totaling $320,000 to fund scientific research to enhance understanding of metastatic breast cancer and to develop much needed therapeutic options to combat this complicated disease. This is the fourth year METAvivor has awarded research grants.
