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.

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!

Metavivor is a nonprofit organization that supports people living with metastatic breast cancer. 100% of the proceeds go to research. Unlike Susan G. Komen. I donate exclusively to Metavivor in the hopes that metastatic disease will be part of our past.

METAvivor is the only national organization that exclusively supports research that benefits patients living with metastatic breast cancer through a peer-reviewed grant process. 100% of every donation made to METAvivor goes directly to research. Thanks to volunteer efforts and direct sponsorships, not one penny of donations are used for overhead. I love that.

This outstanding organization has put metastatic breast cancer on the map and in the consciousness of the public, literally from the grassroots. METAvivor started as a local program and, through the sheer determination and dedication of its founders and volunteers has developed quality programs, amazing outreach, and steady, growing fundraising.
