2nd Annual Minneapolis Metsquerade

The Metsquerade is a fundraising event to benefit Metavivor. METAvivor is dedicated to the specific fight of women and men living with stage IV metastatic breast cancer. At the time of METAvivor’s founding, no organization was dedicated to funding research for the disease and no patient groups were speaking out about the dearth of stage 4 cancer research.  While more and more people have taken up the cry for more stage 4 research, METAvivor remains the sole US organization dedicated to awarding annual metastatic breast cancer research grants.

The Southwest Florida Metsquerade is one of many Metsquerades to sweep the nation and is dedicated to funding research for metastatic breast cancer (MBC). This is the only event of its kind where 100% of donations go to metastatic breast cancer research.

Northwest Arkansas Metsquerade

The NWA Metsquerade is a fundraiser for Metavivor, a non-profit organization that uses 100% of donations for metastatic breast cancer research. This fundraiser has raised over $880,000 since 2016 including monies raised from the annual NWA Metsquerade, Annual Runway IV Reseach, and National Metaribbon Challenge, among others.  The team is closing in on a $1,000,000 raised and are excited about this big milestone in fundraising.

Event details TBD!

MRS/Metavivor Engagement Webinar Series

One key principle to meaningful patient-centered research is the inclusion of stakeholder perspectives, especially the patient perspective, for identifying the most important questions that need to be answered in addition to the most important patient-desired outcomes.

This webinar, “Challenges in clinical trials and tissue collections in metastatic cancer,” is the last in a series of four webinars from December 2018 to March 2019 that will prepare clinicians, patients, and researchers involved in metastatic cancer research and treatment to engage more effectively with each other and will begin to highlight potential top research priories from each stakeholder’s perspective.  These priorities will be discussed further at the Metastatic Cancer Engagement Conference in 2019, dates and details TBA.

The target audience is:
– Metastatic cancer patients, caregivers and family members
– Clinicians, clinician scientists, and translational researchers who focus on studying and/or treating metastatic cancer

Metastatic Cancer Engagement Conference

Despite decades of cancer research, cancer metastasis (the spread of cancer from the primary site throughout the body) still causes approximately 90% of all cancer-related deaths worldwide and in the U.S. specifically (American Cancer Society and World Health Organization). There is no cure for metastatic cancer of any type.

Translational metastasis researchers and clinicians of the Metastasis Research Society have partnered with patient advocates of METAvivor Research and Support Inc. and clinicians from the Sentinel Node Oncology Foundation to create a one-of-a-kind conference and webinar series (dates TBD) meant to engage researchers, clinicians, and patients together in metastasis research to improve stage IV metastatic cancer patient outcomes and quality of life. Year 1 of the project focuses on metastatic breast cancer specifically (2017-2018) and year 2 will be expanded to be inclusive of all metastatic cancer types (2018-2019).

The goal of this project is to engage key stakeholders in cancer metastasis to strengthen and advance patient-centered metastasis research from basic translational research through clinical comparative effectiveness research (CER). CER compares the use of existing therapies to improve patient outcomes relatively quickly. We will also educate the metastatic patient community to enable them to make informed healthcare decisions, with the overall goal of improving stage IV patient outcomes and quality of life.
