Twisted Pink: Funding research, exposing hidden stats of breast cancer
No one dies of breast cancer! The truth is no one dies of breast cancer that remains in the breast. It is not until cancer moves beyond the breast, a process called metastasis, that the breast cancer becomes… [Read More]

Faces of Twisted Pink
If you are a Metastatic Breast Cancer Patient, Twisted Pink needs you to share your story and join many other breast cancer advocates who want to accelerate research for metastatic breast cancer. Faces of Twisted Pink agree to be featured on our website and may be asked to speak at our annual gala event.
If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer and are currently in treatment or remission join our survivor advocate program to help spread the mission of Twisted Pink in a positive & collaborative manor and to advocate for those living with Metastatic Breast Cancer.
While some progress with research and new treatments has been made in reducing mortality rates from breast cancer, median survival after a Metastatic Breast Cancer diagnosis is 3 years—and this has not increased meaningfully in more than 20 years. Twisted Pink wants to change the outcome for Metastatic Breast Cancer patients by funding research that will extend life, enhance quality of life, and ultimately end death from the disease.
Twisted Pink is a member of the Metastatic Breast Cancer Alliance and we collaborate with many other breast cancer organizations that share the same vision of a world without death to breast cancer. The following link provides breast cancer resources for patients, caregivers and clinicians.
Our Commitment Is To Fund Research
In the United States alone, more than 40,000 vibrant lives are lost each year. Despite these stark realities, the most widely known breast cancer fundraising movements direct a small percentage of their research funds to researching Stage IV breast cancer. Instead, their primary focus is on prevention, awareness, and early detection. Twisted Pink and those who support our organization want to impact the 40,000 U.S. citizens and 500,000 worldwide who will lose their life to breast cancer each and every year. While only 6-10% of initial breast cancer diagnoses are metastatic, 20-30% of patients diagnosed with earlier stage breast cancer will eventually develop stage IV breast cancer and die.
Twisted Pink is committed to funding metastatic breast cancer researchers who are willing to collaborate with other Institutions, including patients in their research model. We believe this collaboration and model of funding will speed research results and lead to better understanding of metastasis and a cure to the many types of breast cancer quicker.
