Vickie-Lee Founder's Challenge

As some of you know, I am living with, and fighting, metastatic (stage IV / terminal) breast cancer.

I support METAvivor because 100% of donations to them go directly into research for metastatic breast cancer. Currently, a very low percentage of overall breast cancer research funding is dedicated to metastatic (Stage IV / Terminal) disease -- and the number of women and men dying from breast cancer has not decreased in the past 30 years.

METAvivor's mission is to increase the amount of money dedicated for research and lower the number of women and men dying from this disease.

Any donation amount is greatly appreciated, and 100% of it will go toward research. 

The only living founder of METAvivor, Dian “CJ” Corneliussen, is dedicating this year’s fundraising in memory of our three deceased founders: Karen Presswood, Rhonda Rhodes, and Avis Halberstadt.  In the most trying of times, they gave their energy to making a difference.  They started METAvivor to raise money for research, provide support for patients and bring awareness to Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer.

At the time, there was very little funding, support or awareness for this devastating disease.   CJ said, "At an early Board Meeting around my dining room table in 2009, we’d discussed setting our first grant goal. $25,000 was on the table when Rhonda suddenly stood up and threw out her arms saying, 'Reach for the stars ... $50,000! '  At that point we had about $14,000 in the bank. We exceeded that goal and the first grant awarded was $55,000."

Past and present supporters are grateful for our founders and the countless hours they spent to lay the foundation for what METAvivor is today.
