Metastatic Breast Cancer

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and with that, October 13th is National Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day. Only 2-3% of all funds raised for breast cancer research go to Metastatic Breast Cancer, even though 30% of breast cancer cases become metastatic. Twisted Pink's mission is to raise money dedicated solely to Metastatic Breast Cancer Research. In the last 20 years, not much has changed, the median survival after a Metastatic Breast Cancer diagnosis is 3 years.
