More about Breast Friends Fund & our sweet friend Sandy who is fighting everyday with her battle of stage IV Metastatic Breast Cancer...

A message from Sandy…

My name is Sandy Cassanelli I am 44 years old & live in Glastonbury with my husband Craig & 2 beautiful daughters, Samantha (17) & Amanda (13). I first got breast cancer at age 37 & unfortunately have been stricken with Metastatic Breast Cancer at 39 years old. When breast cancer spreads to other parts of the body, such as the bones, brain, liver, or lungs, it is called metastatic (also referred to as advanced or stage IV). Mine has spread to my liver.

Why is this so Important* *Metastatic Breast Cancer Network

· 1 in 8 Breast Cancer Survivors will develop Metastatic Breast Cancer

· 42,000 People still Die from Metastatic Breast Cancer every Year in the U.S

· 116 Women Die Daily of Metastatic Breast Disease

· Currently, there is No cure for Metastatic Breast Cancer

· Research Funding for Metastatic Breast Cancer accounts for only 7% of the total breast cancer research investment

Breast Friends Fund was created & dedicated to finding me & many women like me a cure.

100% of the proceeds will go directly to support Metastatic Breast Cancer Research under the direction of Dr. Eric Winer and his research team at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

I am very lucky to be a patient of Dr Eric Winer & doing very well on the treatment plan he has designed for me & am able to live a pretty normal life despite having to be in treatment for the rest of my life or until a cure is found.

Dr. Winer is one of the foremost researchers on metastatic breast cancer in the country and is a professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School.

TOGETHER, with your help, we can make an impact and bring about a cure for myself and everyone fighting Metastatic Breast Cancer!

Please feel free to call me or email me any questions, 413-244-8202

My family & I thank you for your consideration!
