Fair research funding for Metastatic Breast Cancer = 30%
Metastatic Breast Cancer is incurable but only gets about 3% of the research funding for breast cancer. Those with MBC have a life expectancy of 2 - 3 years because there is no cure because most of the funding goes to early detection and treating early stage breast cancer.
Over 11,000 people, men as well as women, will probably die of MBC in the UK this year, and half a million worldwide. MBC is not the same as early stage breast cancer (curable) and urgently needs research funding to help find ways of dealing with it when it has spread to bones, liver, lungs, brain etc.
30% of those diagnosed with breast cancer will develop MBC. All we ask is a fair share of the research funding to save our lives.
