Not many people realize that metastatic breast cancer is almost always incurable, and that up to 30% of all breast cancer patients die from metastasis. That's more than 40,000 people every year in the US alone! Furthermore, metastasis is usually not discovered until years - even decades - after the initial diagnosis, surgery, and treatment, leaving hundreds of thousands of patients with years of uncertainty. Metastasis research is critical to improve breast cancer death rates, yet it is difficult and slow. METAvivor brings together patients, advocates, and experts to get accurate information to the public, and to raise money to fund important research specifically on breast cancer metastasis.
