Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness, Research and Support
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?
2016 was the first year for METAvivor to make a comprehensive effort toward educating Congress about metastatic breast cancer and the needs of the metastatic cancer community. With your help we did well but we still have work to do!

This week we have had one of the most controversial elections in U.S. history, and along with that election has come uncertainty. While everything is in a state of flux, we still need each of you to be energized.
METAvivor Research and Support announces seven new grant awards for metastatic breast cancer research. The 2016 grant awards hold promise for clinical trials that may have a significant and positive impact for metastatic cancer.
Inspired by the Cancer Moonshot and in collaboration with the Metastasis Research Society, METAvivor commits to funding $1 million in metastasis research grants in 2017, and doubling that amount in 2018.
