Most of you know that I am a blogger in addition to being the Editor. What you may not know is that my husband, Tim, also blogs. Recently he wrote a blog that seemed to resonate within my own metastatic community so I thought I would share it with you all here. It touches on many of our concerns right now.
Last week we were fortunate to hear from Karin Petrocelli and her passion for fund raising for Metavivor. Karin entered hospice in December 2019 with the support of her beautiful daughters and husband Vinnie. This week we are again fortunate to hear from her husband Vinnie about care giving and what he has learned in recent years from his partnership with Karin, a true letter of love.

This blog post is by METAvivor board member Karin Petrocelli. Despite entering hospice care in December 2019, Karin has persevered and run this year's Southwest Florida Metsquerade which has raised nearly $200,000 for research in 2018 and 2019. We love the passion of our volunteers and their desire to fund research for metastatic breast cancer. Karin defines, with grace and humility, the very best of the best.
The new deadline for the Early Career Investigator LOI will be March 24, 2020 and the Translational Research LOI will be March 25, 2020.
