"I never knew about metastatic breast cancer disease until my sister was diagnosed with it."
I would like to see more funding and more awareness for metastatic breast cancer.
I never knew about this disease until my sister was diagnosed with it. She is a strong single mother and it hurts me to know that she has to fight for her life on a daily basis. It’s been 3 years since she’s been diagnosed – she is doing really good with her treatments but it’s really scary to know that it could change in the blink of an eye.
We need more research so she can be cured and live a long life. She needs to be here for her children. She deserves to see them grow up and have families of there own. She is stronger than she knows. I am thankful for her.

“Mr. Marcus, you have kidney, lung, and brain cancer. Stage 4. We are going to monitor you for the next 24 hours but there is not much we can do for you here. You need to go home and start making arrangements. At most, you have two years to live.”
I had a red circle on the right side of my breast, and I had lost twenty pounds despite the fact that I was not on a diet. When I went to the doctor their tests couldn’t find anything wrong, so I told them to check out this red spot.
My husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 Renal Cell Carcinoma (RCC). He had a total left nephrectomy on our 35th wedding Anniversary on Sept. 10, 2012. At that time there was no treatment that was available.
