Welcome to My Fundraising Page!
Any stage can become Metastatic- stage 0 through stage 3; All types and grades of tumours. Contrary to popular belief there is NO GOOD cancer to get.
Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC) is the only type of Breast Cancer that kills.
While a very small percentage of people live many years with Stage IV MBC, the average life expectancy is between 2-3 years and chances of reaching the 5 and 10 year survival rate is only 28% & 8% respectively.
Historically money raised for breast cancer research was directed to early detection and treatment of early stage cancer - with only 3-5% being directed to diagnosis, treatments and improving the quality of life for stage IV patients.
The Canadian Cancer Society has been directing more money to MBC research and treatments. In 2018 roughly 1/3 of their total funding was spent on metastatic research, and in August of 2019 they jointly created the Metastatic Dream Team with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C) Canada to announce the SU2C Canada Metastatic Breast Cancer Dream Team.
The Dream Team will receive up to $6 million in funding over 4 years to conduct a nationwide clinical trial to test a new way of treating metastatic breast cancer. The trial's goal is to stop cancer cells from becoming aggressive and spreading to other organs.
In February of this year my early stage 2 "good" breast cancer came back in my spine and skeletal system as Stage IV Breast Cancer.
This is why I have created a Metastatic Breast Cancer team, where all money raised will go directly to Metastatic research and for the funding of clinical trials - which could drastically lengthen and improve my quality of life, and the millions of other MBC patients that so desperately want more time.
