Thank you for considering a donation to METAvivor as part of the Southwest Florida Metsquerade campaign. By donating here, 100% of your donation will benefit METAvivor. Thanks to, your generous donation to our Event will make a difference in the lives of the 150,000 men and women living with Metastatic Breast Cancer here in the US. It is devastating to know that once one is diagnosed with MBC one will eventually be one of the 40,000 men and women who will die each year of from this incurable disease.

METAvivor is the sole breast cancer organization where 100% of all donations will got to Metastatic Breast Cancer Research. That is approximately 96% more than any other breast cancer organization anywhere.

On a more personal note; I am the Event Chair for this event and my name is Karin Petrocelli. For the past 5 years, I have been living with Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC). Yes, I am living but I don’t know for how long. Because of the uncertainty of how much longer I have, I have decided to do anything and everything I can to ensure longevity for my four beautiful young daughters and for all others diagnosed with MBC. I am worried for my daughters that because of me, they will one day be one of 113 women and men that die each day in the US from Metastatic Breast Cancer. While living with MBC, every day is a struggle. My days and weeks consists of endless treatments, scans, procedures and fear. There is fear that treatments will stop working and thus, I will exhaust all available treatment options which will ultimately lead to my death.

The 2018 SWFL Metsquerade will be an event that you won't soon forget. The Metsquerade will be an evening filled with great food, great entertainment, and great auction items. But more than anything else, you will enjoy an evening that will fill you with HOPE! Hope, that due to your generosity, we will finally be able to transition Metastatic Breast Cancer from a terminal disease to a controlled, permanently survivable condition with a decent quality of life.

Thank you for supporting the SWFL Metsquerade and METAvivor

Blessings to all,
