THE STORY:

I am participating in the 2014 Boston Marathon and will be raising money for an organization METAvivor in honor of my mother in law Moira Gallogly who has recently been diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer. 

If you know someone who has died from breast cancer, they died from metastatic breast cancer. 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. 100% of breast cancer deaths occur because of metastasis, and almost 100% of people whose breast cancer has metastasized will die from it. In the United States alone, this means that more than 40,000 vibrant lives are lost each year. 

METAvivor's focus is to raise awareness about metastatic breast cancer in order to provide metastasis researchers the grants they need to transform metastatic breast cancer from a terminal disease into a chronic disease. Researchers believe that with the right resources it is possible, but the popular breast cancer fundraising movements give on average only 2% of their research funds to researching metastasis while 30% of patients diagnosed with earlier stage breast cancer will eventually develop stage 4 breast cancer and die. Our goal is clear, but to be successful we need you.
