In memory of our beautiful mother, we are pleased to support METAvivor, an organization that funds life-extending research for people who are battling metastatic breast cancer.
Did you know that 30% of breast cancer patients will face a diagnosis of "metastatic disease" (meaning the cancer has spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body)? Yet only 2% of breast cancer research funding goes toward seeking cures for stage IV metastatic patients. METAvivor is seeking to change this through research, advocacy and patient support. The organization is run entirely by volunteers, and in 2016, they were named the National Breast Cancer Nonprofit of the Year by Breast Cancer Wellnessmagazine. Most importantly, 100% of every donation to METAvivor goes to fund metastatic breast cancer research.
We donate to METAvivor in honor of our mom, who battled metastatic breast cancer for two years and now enjoys the fullness of life in Heaven. We also have close friends who have been impacted by this disease and still continue their fight with amazing courage and optimism. By supporting METAvivor, we hope to someday live in a world where all breast cancer patients have hope for a cure.
