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.
Your donation will help fund critical research that will help extend lives. Women and men living with stage IV breast cancer face a median 2-3 year mortality rate. Metastatic Breast Cancer has no cure. Research will help extend lives and provide better quality of life to those living with metastatic breast cancer.
Twisted Pink directs 100% of our net profits to metastatic breast cancer research. We are a 501c3 organization with Federal Tax ID 47-1140389.
