Rally For Research
In July 2015, Chris's wife Pam was diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer. In the summer of 2016, Bodacious Racing participated in the 2016 Peking to Paris Endurance Rally to help “drive” attention to some of the stark realities of this disease:
100% of breast cancer deaths occur because of metastasis, and almost 100% of people whose breast cancer has metastasized will die from it.
6% - 10% of initial breast cancer diagnoses are metastatic.
30% of patients diagnosed with earlier stage breast cancer will eventually develop stage 4 breast cancer and die.
In the US alone, more than 40,000 lives are lost each year to Metastatic Breast Cancer.
The popular breast cancer fundraising movements give on average only 2% of their research funds to researching metastasis.
METAvivor directs 100% of all donations to research.
In an effort to raise awareness and research dollars, they embark on their next rally on September 26th - 28th.
