Forever Fighter is someone battling stage IV or metastatic breast cancer that has spread to their bones, liver, lungs and/or brain.  Currently there is no cure for metastatic breast cancer. Men and women with this diagnosis are in a battle for the rest of their life.


Some people with metastatic breast cancer do not identify with the term “Survivor” since their battle is ongoing. Forever Fighter is a term used to honor those in the fight against stage IV, metastatic breast cancer.  Anyone who self-identifies as stage IV or metastatic, has the opportunity to wear gold beads on Race day, as well as wear a special Forever Fighter button (pictured left).  Both items will be located in the Survivor Tent on Race day.
