WHY WE NEED YOU
Thirty percent of women and men who are diagnosed with breast cancer will eventually develop stage 4 (metastatic) breast cancer and die. Yet of all the money dedicated to breast cancer research, only 2-5% is earmarked specifically for metastatic research. METAvivor’s goal is to have cancer organizations devote 30% of their research budget to research that will help the 30% of women and men whose cancer metastasizes.
The surest way to save the lives of patients already diagnosed with breast cancer is to find a way to make MBC survivable.
