Our lives and experiences, our support and our research differ from that associated with the traditional cancer “survivor” and thus we do not use that term. Instead we refer to ourselves as “METAvivors.” We are a thriving community of people living against the odds every day, fighting for the research that could save our lives. What is Metastatic (Stage 4) Breast Cancer?
