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?
Today METAvivor, an all-volunteer organization dedicated to changing the lives of patients with metastatic breast cancer, and The Metastasis Research Society (MRS), an international non-profit organization that promotes the exchange of information and research into metastasis, announced the establishment of the Strategic Alliance for Metastatic Cancer Research.
Our Sea to Sea for MBC journey began Monday, when we had the privilege of meeting with Dr. Balamurugan Kuppusamy, Staff Scientist at the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and his colleagues to hear about their research in cancer and the challenges they face.
The METAvivor Sea to Sea for MBC campaign will champion researchers and patients. #C2C4MBC
