Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney declared August 9 as Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day in Richmond.

On August 9, METAvivor stopped by VCU Massey Cancer Center as part of their Sea to Sea for Metastatic Breast Cancer Advocacy Campaign (S2S4MBC). METAvivor’s founder Dian “CJ” Corneliussen-James and several of the organization’s advocates met with Chuck Harrell, Ph.D., and Paula Bos, Ph.D., both assistant professors in the VCU Department of Pathology and research program members at Massey Cancer Center, to learn more about their METAvivor-funded research exploring new treatment approaches for metastatic breast cancer. The group then hosted an information session for other Massey research program members interested in learning more about METAvivor’s mission and research funding opportunities. 

In honor of METAvivor's visit and to help raise awareness for metastatic breast cancer, Richmond Mayor Levar Stoney declared August 9 as Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day in Richmond.
