1. Metastatic Breast Cancer causes 100% of all death from breast cancer
    You don't need your breasts - that's why they can just slice them off of you. BC kills you when it spreads from the breast to other useful parts of your body.
  2. A women will be diagnosed with breast cancer every 2 minutes
  3. 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer
    Look around you right now- can you see 8 women? Which of you will it be?
  4. Despite this only 5% of all funding for research goes to metastatic disease
    50% goes to awareness, mostly around "early detection"
  5. Early detection doesn't work at all for young women
    All we can do is wait to feel a lump- by then the cancer is already advanced
  6. Breast Cancer is the leading cause of cancer death in women aged 15-35
  7. So what can we do?
  8. Raise awareness about METASTATIC DISEASE
    I made it easy! Share this list!
  9. Donate and support organizations working on RESEARCH
    Especially metastatic disease but all research is good - anything that doesn't have to do with "mammograms" or "self exams" two of the larger ones are the Breast Cancer Research Fund (BCRF) and the Metastatic Breast Cancer Alliance (part of the Avon Foundation) www.bcrfcure.org www.mbcalliance.org
