114 People Die Every Day from Metastatic Breast Cancer in the US alone
100% of breast cancer deaths occur because of metastasis, and almost 100% of people whose breast cancer has metastasized will die from it. In the United States alone, this means that more than 41,000 vibrant lives are lost each year.
Despite these stark realities, breast cancer funding gives on average only 5% of their research funds to researching metastasis. Young researchers are leaving the field because of a lack of funding and good quality research proposals are currently going unfunded.
Misty Schaefer died from MBC on June 29th, 2018. She is one of the many beautiful and vibrant lives lost.
Fund the Research through METAvivor Research and Support, Inc.
We do not have any time to wait. We can transition MBC from a terminal to a chronic disease with more research. METAvivor has an excellent Scientific Peer Review Process to ensure quality research is being funded and we need to make sure the money is there to enable the research.
To date METAvivor has funded 33 grants totaling $2.4 million. We offer research grants annually for metastatic breast cancer.
Research Can Save Lives
Many metastasis researchers believe that metastatic breast cancer could become a chronic, rather than terminal, disease, if only there were more money to do the research necessary to develop effective treatments. There are so many lives depending on you.
