Our lives and experiences, our support and our research differ from that associated with the traditional cancer “survivor” and thus we do not use that term. Instead we refer to ourselves as “METAvivors.” We are a thriving community of people living against the odds every day, fighting for the research that could save our lives. What is Metastatic (Stage 4) Breast Cancer?
Support Laura as she climbs Europe's highest summit, Mount Elbrus, to honor her mother's ongoing battle with metastatic breast cancer.
Support the Hockinson High School Lady Hawks as they raise money for metastatic breast cancer research by making free throws in the 2013-2014 season!
METAvivor is thrilled to announce the award of four research grants totaling $320,000 to fund scientific research to enhance understanding of metastatic breast cancer and to develop much needed therapeutic options to combat this complicated disease. This is the fourth year METAvivor has awarded research grants.
Milwaukee, Wisconsin lit the Domes for METAvivor last October! “The Domes” are a popular Milwaukee landmark and serve as home to the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory. At night the domes sparkle with a dazzling programed display of colors. In support of METAvivor, the domes’ floodlights will be lit in teal representing hope, green for life and pink as a reminder of breast cancer! During the day each of the three enclosed domes allow different habitats to thrive – one a desert oasis, another a tropical jungle, and the third a spectacular floral display. Our gratitude to the City of Milwaukee and the Mitchell Park Horticultural Conservatory team for helping us raise awareness!
