About METAvivor

METAvivor Research and Support, Inc. is a non-profit, charitable organization with the mission to fund stage IV metastatic breast cancer research to one day transition the disease from terminal to chronic, yet manageable with a good quality of life. METAvivor also works to improve the quality of life of those living with metastatic breast cancer, through support, awareness, advocacy and education. Since 2009, METAvivor awarded 68 research grants totaling $7.4 million. METAvivor is the only national organization with a peer-reviewed grant program aimed at exclusively funding MBC research, and 100% of all donations go to fund research


  • Research – Research is the priority for METAvivor. Metastatic breast cancer is woefully underfunded and there is no “cure”.

It is expected that more than 150,000 people are currently living with stage IV metastatic breast cancer. One in three people diagnosed with early stage disease will later become metastatic . 

Prevention and early detection, the focus of much of the breast cancer research conducted in recent decades, are laudable goals. But they do no good for those who have already had breast cancer, and especially for those who have been diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer - currently a terminal disease. METAvivor works diligently to raise funds for research because this is how lives will be saved. The current funding disparity is deadly for breast cancer patients, and METAvivor will tirelessly advocate for equity until 30% of breast cancer research funds are allocated to research that will ultimately save the lives of metastatic breast cancer patients.
