It's hard not to be aware of breast cancer. Pink ribbons abound, telling the stories of early detection and survival. The dark secret of breast cancer, however, is told by METAvivors - those men and women who are living with the kind of breast cancer that kills. This is the story that must be told, and you can help. While we are currently not seeking additional volunteers, you can help spread awareness and raise funds for research.
While breast cancer awareness is prominent in pink promotions everywhere, there is far less understanding of the specific realities of stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. And those who do understand often prefer to ignore the existence of the disease, finding it too frightening to contemplate. Despite tremendous focus on prevention and early detection, the fact remains that thirty percent of patients who are diagnosed with breast cancer will eventually metastasize and ultimately die from the disease. You can help by watching and sharing our awareness videos. Download our brochure here to share with friend and family. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
