We are very excited to launch our new website and create awareness and raise money for Metastatic Breast Cancer.
METAvivor is the only organization in the US that exclusively funds MBC research through a scientific peer-review process. They award research grants to individuals with a clinical or other doctoral degree who are actively engaged in areas of metastatic breast cancer research, and whose proposals show distinct promise in making a difference for the stage 4 breast cancer community.
Their mission is to transition metastatic breast cancer from a terminal diagnosis to a chronic, manageable disease with a decent quality of life.
They bring attention to the specific issues of stage IV metastatic breast cancer, and raise public awareness about the facts of the disease. Each year, 200,000 Americans are diagnosed with breast cancer. Six to ten percent of these diagnoses are metastatic, or stage IV, and approximately another 30% of breast cancer patients develop metastatic breast cancer. Hence, believe that at least 30% of the funds given to breast cancer organizations should be dedicated to metastatic breast cancer.
We hope you will learn more on our website and help us fight this battle through donations and support.
