Metastatic Breast Cancer Research Fund
2016 Metastatic Breast Cancer Research Collaborative (MBCRC)
Twisted Pink is committed to funding research that embraces the concepts outlined in the National Cancer Institute Moonshot Initiative. Founding members of the MBCRC include:
- Twisted Pink, Caroline Johnson
- Teresa’s Research Foundation, Josh Newby
- Hope Scarves, Lara MacGregor
- Metastatic Breast Cancer Network, Shirley A. Mertz
The objective of the group is to produce within a creative, iterative, learning system, fundable impactful research collaborations with a metastatic breast cancer patient focus that have a national reach and international applications. There is a need to bridge the communication barriers between breast cancer patients, clinicians and researchers and the MBCRC will literally fuel the acceleration of putting into motion a “Virtuous Cycle” that will end breast cancer deaths.
This concept will be set in motion at the Metastatic Breast Cancer Conference at Baylor University October 21-23, 2016, a joint effort of Baylor University, Teresa’s Research Foundation, MBC Alliance & MBCN.
