As you may know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness month but on the 13th, it is Metastatic Breast Cancer Day.
Metastastic Breast Cancer also know as Stage IV Breast Cancer is unfortunately under researched, underfunded and not talked about as much as Breast Cancer Awareness.
Although awareness is great, there’s so much more that needs to be done. More effort and research needs to be done to one day find a cure. Metastatic Breast Cancer is the stage where the cancer spreads beyond the breast into other areas of the body. Such as bones, the brain, etc.
Research in many cases requires funding and I wanted to list sites that you can donate to help forward the initiative to fund researching for Metastatic Breast Cancer and women fighting it:
http://tigerlilyfoundation.org – Foundation
http://Komen.org– Susan G Komen
http://Breastcancer.org– Breast Cancer Organization
Let’s continue to bring awareness and research capability for Metastatic Breast Cancer.
