METAvivor’s 2nd Annual Stage IV Stampede: make your voice heard on Capitol Hill! The event will include a half mile march from the Hyatt Regency to the U.S. Capitol, a Die-In (hosted by MET Up) to represent the 113 individuals that die each day from MBC, and an educational briefing on patient protections in healthcare. The event will culminate in a day of team-based meetings with the offices of your Senators and House Representatives where we will educate them about stage IV MBC and ask them to support the community by facilitating additional funding for research, keeping vital patient protections in healthcare and improving access to treatments.
On Thursday October 12, METAvivor will host registration, a reception and a brief training session for individuals interested in learning more about the issues facing the community and how to effectively engage congressional staff. You do not need to be an expert in civics or government to help create positive change, you just need to stand up and speak out!
