Erin Remme, fierce advocate for Stage 4 Metastatic Breast Cancer awareness, has died at 35
A young mother we introduced you to, two years ago, in her effort to raise awareness about stage 4 metastatic breast cancer (MBC), has died.
Since her diagnosis, Erin Remme has been a fierce advocate for funding that can lead to more research into the disease.
She helped bring the first-ever METAvivor Metsquerade fundraising event to Minnesota in 2018.
In its first year, the event raised more than $180,000 for research. Last year, donors upped that significantly to $350,000, the largest event, and most money ever raised at a METAvivor Metsquerade event across the country.
On the METAvivor website, it states; "Breast cancer fundraisers are everywhere, but most of the money raised goes into breast cancer prevention and early detection efforts. Very little of it benefits those already fighting the disease, and only a tiny sliver is dedicated toward research for stage 4, or MBC."
The 3rd Annual Minneapolis Metsquerade Virtual Event is scheduled for September 12, 2020, and you can donate in Remme's honor.
Remme leaves behind a husband and three young children, and a support group spanning the country that is committed to continuing her work. She was just 35 years old.
