“LM is one of the most devastating and aggressive late-stage cancer complications, in which the primary cancer spreads to the central nervous system. The most common solid tumor giving rise to LM is breast cancer and LM affects 3% to 5% of women already suffering with breast cancer," stated Jamil Rivers, President of METAvivor Research and Support, Inc. "The continued investment in clinical research and development for metastatic breast cancer, including leptomeningeal metastases, is critically important. We lose 115 people every day to metastatic breast cancer, which is unacceptable. Patients and their families experience significant burdens when faced with a metastatic breast cancer diagnosis. Research for treatments offers new hope to extend life for those diagnosed with LM."
