We have worked to unite over 80 iconic landmarks in 65 cities across the globe within 5 countries to light in green, pink and teal throughout October in support of Annapolis-based non-profit METAvivor Research and Support Inc. The goal of this #LightUpMBC campaign is to raise awareness for Stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer and the lack of research funding. We would like the public to consider Metavivor Research and Support Inc.To find out if a landmark will be lit in in your city and when, visit our events page on this website for the most current status or visit our Facebook page.
How Can You Help? We really need the help of the public for this campaign to be successful. We are asking you to please share our social media posts and to seek out participating landmarks on the evening of the lightings, take pictures and post them publicly to social media with the hashtags #LightUpMBC, #MooreFightMooreStrong and #Metavivor. It is very important the public understands the reason behind these lightings. While 30% of early stage breast cancer patients will metastasize, only 2-5% of all breast cancer funds raised go to stage IV breast cancer research to truly find a cure, or make the disease a lifelong manageable illness. Over 42,000 lives are taken annually by this disease and the life expectancy on average is only 26 months. Please consider Metavivor Research and Support Inc. as your organization of choice to change this. 100% of Metavivor funds raised are put toward Stage IV breast cancer research to truly find a cure.
This site was created to show support and love for a beautiful young woman, Jessica Moore, who at 32 years old, was diagnosed with Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC). She was a loving wife, daughter & daughter-in-law, sister & sister-in-law, aunt, niece, cousin, boss, employee and best friend to many. Anyone that knew her loved her. She was an athlete, fighter and tough as nails. Her loving husband, parents, family and friends are carrying out Jess' mission to raise awareness for MBC.
