Metastasis is what kills cancer patients, but research in this critical area is woefully underfunded compared to the magnitude of the problem. METAvivor is a grassroots organization that is raising support for laboratory research directly targeting metastasis. They also provide support for patients living with metastatic cancer. Perhaps as importantly, they have begun to shine a light on the growing number of patients living with metastatic cancer -- their real problems, challenges and realities. METAvivor solicits advice from experts to assure that their research grants are going to the best possible science. They do all of this with a minimum administrative overhead. In short, if I want money going directly to metastasis research, this is the place I send my contribution!!

This is the bestwebsite and cancer support/research organization on the web. I have had metastatic breast cancer since March 28th 2011. I haven't seen as much activity towards research and education as I have in the past year. All largely due to metavivors social media campaigns. More people are truly aware of metastatic breast cancer and its sad statistic because of the activity of metavivor during breast cancer awareness Month. It is the first time I have had hope in these last four years. Thank you guys for raising money for research and making the public truly more aware

As someone living with Metastatic breast cancer, Metavivor is an organization that is helping spread awareness for my type of disease. I hope that with their advocacy and grants for research leads to finding a cure so that I may live.

I have friends with breast cancer and support them - and I know they are at risk for metastatic disease. I know of others who have died from metastatic breast cancer and left behind loved ones who needed them - a teenager with a disability and no one else to provide care, a husband, now a widower. Metavivor has found a niche for an underserved group in the battle against cancer and present a powerful and convincing case for boosting research to help them, while being honest and real, not asking for pity but for a cure or at least treatment to extend life This group shares the strength and support that will let all affected women live to the fullest for as long and as well as possible.

Truly non-profit. All monies go toward research for a cure for breast cancer. MBC is the elephant in the pink room. 30% of Breast cancer patients will go on to have MBC they have a recurrence (stage IV MBC) or are initially diagnosed with stage IV. Only about of 3% of Breast cancer funds go to research for MBC and a cure. Those of us who are METAvivors or Cancer lifers believe we deserve our fair share of research dollars. Don't ignore stage IV. METAvivor is completely staffed by volunteers and all monies go toward research for a cure. Please for my sake and that of the 40,000 plus men and women who die each year of MBC give to a real,non-profit that does what it's mission says. I support METAvivor because I am a Cancer lifer and METAvivor and they support and educate me and thousands of others who have nowhere else to,find support and education.

METAvivor is one of 2 breast cancer organizations I donate to. I have a dear friend with Stage 4 breast cancer and she made me aware of their work. They fund RESEARCH! They are actively working towards a cure, which is what other groups SHOULD be doing! And their ratio of money going directly to funding research is awesome!

I am a five year metastatic breast cancer lifer, and I so appreciate that Metavivor donates all of their proceeds to metastatic breast cancer research. It may not save me, but I love envisioning a world without MBC for my four children. Keep up the great work! Love you guys!

This non profit is fighting for all of us, a cause long overdue, stage iv breast cancer. No one dies from breast cancer, they die from its metasticizing. We need to concentrate on eliminating stage iv breast cancer and give everyone with breast cancer a chance at life
