Right now, breast cancer is at a tipping point. More women are surviving. But more are being diagnosed than ever before. One in seven women in the UK will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. And every 45 minutes, another woman dies from the disease.
We are going to change that. We are Breast Cancer Now, the UK’s largest breast cancer charity.
We are dedicated to funding research into this devastating disease, campaign to make sure that everyone affected by breast cancer receives the best possible treatment, and we provide care and support to everyone affected by the disease.
Steered by Research
We work with almost 340 of the brightest minds in breast cancer research. We are discovering how we can prevent breast cancer, diagnose it sooner, find more effective and kinder treatments and stop it taking lives. Our world-class research gives us the power to drive progress forward.
To date, we have invested £230 million in breast cancer research. Right now, we are funding around 80 cutting-edge projects worth just over £26 million.
Powered by Care
We want everyone diagnosed with breast cancer to get the support they need. Our breast care nurses, staff and volunteers are dedicated to helping with the physical and emotional impact of the disease.
Across the UK, our free specialist support services offer tailored information and support and are being used more than ever. We are here for anyone affected by breast cancer, whether they have just been diagnosed or have finished treatment.
Your donation will help to make sure the world-class research taking place in our labs, and the life-changing care and support we provide to those who so desperately need it, continues.
If we act now, we can create a future where everyone, who develops breast cancer, lives – and is supported to live well. Every pound will help us to get there.
