Pink Out Loud! Giveaway with Paul Mitchell & Victoria’s Secret

Paul Mitchell Pink Out Loud for Breast Cancer Prevention and Awareness
According to METAvivor, “if you know someone who has died from breast cancer, they died from metastatic (stage 4) breast cancer. Most people don’t know that, and even fewer people understand that…

Metastatic breast cancer, or stage 4 breast cancer, is the spread of breast cancer to non-adjacent parts of the body — most commonly to the bones, liver, lungs and/or brain. Many effective breast cancer treatments exist, but if the cancer metastasizes and spreads outside of the breast, there is no cure.

Despite these stark realities, the popular breast cancer fundraising movements give on average only 2% of their research funds to researching metastasis. Instead, their primary focus is on prevention, which does nothing to help those already diagnosed, and early detection, which does not impact those facing the ultimate death sentence of stage 4 breast cancer. And while only 6% – 10% of initial breast cancer diagnoses are metastatic, 30% of patients diagnosed with earlier stage breast cancer will eventually develop stage 4 breast cancer and die.

METAvivor’s research mission is two-fold: to increase awareness about the funding discrepancy that shortchanges metastatic research in the cancer world (see our 30% for 30% campaign), and to directly fund the kind of research that is currently lacking. With the primary goal of extending life and ending death from MBC, METAvivor awards grants for research projects that have the potential to shift MBC from a terminal disease to a chronic condition with a decent quality of life.”

I hope you’ll join me in supporting METAvivor.org by making a small donation or spreading the word about their efforts to help those who have already been diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer.

    Thank you so much for posting about Metastatic BC & METAvivor! My mom passed away three years ago from Mets. I’ve only recently discovered Metavivor and all the work they’re doing. Love seeing it here. 🙂
