RAISING FUNDS & advocating FOR METASTATIC BREAST CANCER

We all know that Breast Cancer receives a significant amount of funds for research, but what many don't know is that only 2-7% of those funds actually go to the study of Metastasis. Or that Breast Cancer almost only kills if you have Metastatic (aka Stage IV, Advanced, Secondary) Breast Cancer. And as someone living with MBC these are statistics that I'd like to see change, so that someday this diagnosis doesn't have to mean a lifetime of treatments.

#StageIVNeedsMore

While there are many incredible foundations that do amazing work in raising funds and awareness for those of us living with metastatic breast cancer, these three hold a place near and dear to my heart. You won't hear about pinkwashing with any of these organizations. Your money (and all of it) will go to very good use.

I am treated at Princess Margaret Hospital (PMH), and jumped at the opportunity when someone from the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation (PMCF) reached out to see if I'd be interested in taking part in their DIY Challenge. PMH is one of the top five cancer centres in the world, and my care team definitely lives up to that standard and reputation.

All funds donated here will go directly to PMH's designated Metastatic Breast Cancer Research fund.

BECOME AN MBC ALLY

"Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) is a stage IV uncurable cancer that takes the lives of 5,000 Canadian women every year. MBC is breast cancer that has spread beyond the breast to other organs in the body. It is estimated 20 – 30% of women diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer will develop MBC in her lifetime.* 

The average survival for women with MBC is only 2-3 years – something that hasn’t improved in over a decade. And something you have the opportunity to help change.

Rethink Breast Cancer is launching a new movement that seeks to double the survival rate of women driving system change and funding MBC research. Our goal is ambitious and requires thousands of committed, active allies. Will you join us? 

When we stand together, we strengthen our power to drive change and improve the lives of all women with breast cancer."
