Activists gathered on Capitol Hill Tuesday calling on lawmakers to focus more funding efforts on metastatic breast cancer research. The main event was a “die-in” where participants laid down on the Capitol lawn, symbolyzing the ultimate fate of those diagnosed. There is no cure for stage 4 breast cancer and each day 1,430 people die of the disease.
