WHAT WE DO
Support - Local. METAvivor has its on local support program operated out of Annapolis, Maryland. We consider a "local" program to be one where members live close enough to get together in person. Persons living as far as Delaware to the east, Washington DC and Virginia to the west and Frederick to the north have joined our local program.
Support - Outreach. METAvivor encourages persons with MBC to start their own local support programs and we offer advice and assistance to anyone, who asks. We welcome new METAvivor Affiliates but happily assist others as well. Visit our Build Your Own Support Group page for suggestions and advice. Awareness.
