METAVIVOR RESEARCH AND SUPPORT INC
November 5, 2012

To find an organisation that is so transparent about everything it does is quite frankly surprising, even in the non-profit world. I have metastatic breast cancer and we need to be noticed and accepted, especially by the breast cancer community as a whole who usually ignore our existence as we are not pink fluffy "survivors". We don't fit into the Pink Survivor scenario although uur plight is used to raise funds that do nothing to help or benefit those who have MBC. It is as though there is nothing between early stage breast cancer (which is survivable) and End of Life. Well, THERE IS, and METAvivor is the only group I know of which is dedicated to the life of these men and women, and to finding treatments for us. 30% of the "Early Stage Survivors" will develop metastatic disease and METAvivor is actually doing something to help them when they cross over the divide between SURvivor and METAvivor.
