METAvivor requests your participation in filling out the attached survey. Participation is anonymous. You can skip any question that does not apply or that you do not wish to answer.

The purpose of the survey is to determine the impact of metastatic breast cancer on the lives of those living with the disease.

METAvivor will use the survey information to write one or more papers to inform policymakers, researchers, cancer organizations and the public as to the seriousness of the disease and the great need for change and improvement in many areas.

METAvivor hopes to present these findings at the Advanced Breast Cancer First Consensus Conference in Lisbon, Portugal in November 2011.

We apologize for the late notice, but we are working against a tight deadline and require your response no later than July 14th. Thank you very much for your willingness to participate.
