The Breasties stage 4 research

with Magee-Womens Research Institute

Stage 4 breast cancer is the only form of breast cancer that kills, yet it receives the least amount of funding. As a community that supports all diagnoses, we grew increasingly frustrated by this disparity. 
In 2019, The Breasties made a commitment at the first Camp Breastie to support stage 4 cancer research by donating $5,000 of funds raised from Camp to Metavivor. 
In 2022, this mission expanded into an annual $50,000 stage 4 research grant with Magee-Womens Research Institute. The community selected a study with Dr. Steffi Oesterreich identifying how mutations in the estrogen receptor cause resistance to hormonal therapies and metastasis. At this year's Camp Breastie, attendees received updates on the progress of the stage 4 research grant directly from lead researcher, Dr. Steffi Oesterreich.

Please help us reach our goal this year of supporting an additional $50,000 of funds towards stage 4 research.
