Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness, Research and Support

Our lives and experiences differ from the traditional cancer survivor, so 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, raising awareness of the issues facing us, and offering support to patients.
