Breast Cancer Awareness Month Fund

About

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This annual campaign spotlights breast cancer research, prevention, education, treatment, and ultimately, the fight to find a cure. The following organizations are committed to increasing breast cancer awareness through research initiatives and education programs surrounding prevention and early-detection, while advocating for patient access to high-quality treatment options. Organizations included in this Fund also promote awareness surrounding metastatic breast cancer--the most advanced stage of breast cancer--and provide supportive services for those affected by breast cancer. Your donation to this Fund will help these organizations support breast cancer patients and survivors as the fight to find a cure continues.

While more and more people have taken up the cry for more stage 4 research, METAvivor remains the sole US organization dedicated to awarding annual stage 4 breast cancer research.
