The Stunning actress opened up about her sister’s fight with breast cancer. Longoria’s family stayed informed of medical health in her family, so when her sister was diagnosed at stage 1 Breast Cancer, they sprang into action to help her fight this disease.
Because her sister’s breast cancer was caught early, she received treatment and went into remission. Consequently, studies have shown that 1 in 3 people who have stage 1 breast cancer can develop metastatic breast cancer.
Longoria shares that there has been so many advances made toward early detection and diagnosis, but there is not enough funding that goes towards funding research for Stage 4 cancer, which is know to others as Metastatic Breast Cancer (MBC). MBC is a cancer that spreads to other body parts such as the brain, liver or even in the bone. It is incurable.
Because MBC is relatively unspoken of Longoria and Norvartis have joined together to raise awareness and funds to go towards Stage 4 breast cancer research.
