If you know someone who has died from breast cancer, they died from metastatic breast cancer (MBC). Yet, only 2 - 5% of money for breast cancer research is dedicated toward understanding metastatic breast cancer, or finding solutions to extend the lives of MBC patients. We need your help to shift the public discussion and prompt action for our disease. Together, we can be the catalyst for change. A diagnosis of MBC is terminal. Those with a diagnosis of MBC have unique needs such as the need for expedited benefits, including Social Security and disability income. They also want to have the Right to Try new treatment and therapies and, of course, need affordable health insurance that will meet their unique needs.
In the sea of pink breast cancer awareness campaigns, METAvivor is the “Elephant in the Pink Room”. We work to raise awareness about metastatic, Stage IV breast cancer, and to fund research to extend the lives of people living with MBC. Learn More
METAvivor regularly launches public awareness and advocacy campaigns to increase understanding about metastatic breast cancer, to help increase funding for research focused on the already-metastasized patient, and to advocate for improved benefits and treatments for patients living with MBC. We encourage you to get involved in our campaigns.
