40k people a year die from breast cancer. That number, despite all the pink ribbons money can buy, has not changed since 1970. #Thread
Stage-4 breast cancer is also called metastatic breast cancer. Metastasis occurs in about 30% of women diagnosed with breast cancer...
...and it comes with an average three-year survival rate.
.@METUPorg estimates that only 7% of breast cancer research funding goes toward studying metastatic breast cancer...
...despite the fact that 30% of people diagnosed with breast cancer will have it metastasize.
The lack of progress can be credited to a few things: lack of research funding and gaps in the data.
And although this all seems bleak, there’s a network of activists committed to changing this. damemagazine.com/2017/10/26/why…
