On a more personal note; I am the Event Chair for this event and my name is Karin Petrocelli. For the past 7 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 114 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 consist 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 2020 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,
Karin Petrocelli
