13octAll DayPenman Dam in Paris Lit Up to Shine a Light on Metastatic Breast Cancer - #LightUpMBC(All Day: wednesday)

National Metastatic Breast Cancer Awareness Day

Event Details

The Panman Dam in Paris will be lit up to shine a light (in green, teal and pink) on the importance of awareness and funding for metastatic breast cancer.   On Wed. Oct. 13.

Every year, more than 115 people in the U.S. die every day from metastatic breast cancer (MBC), also known as Stage IV or advanced breast cancer, for which there is no cure.  This happens when the cancer spreads beyond the breast to other parts of the body.

#LightUpMBC Live, a virtual benefit, will begin at 8:30pm EST on Oct. 13.  Viewers can livestream the event on LiveXLive, Facebook Live @METAvivor and METAVivor.org.  The event will include inspiring MBC stories from illuminated landmarks around the globe and musical guests such as Kristin Chenoweth, Tom Morello, Rob Thomas and JD Eicher to raise funds for metastic breast cancer research.
