Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, created by the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
Our cutting-edge research is focused entirely on breast cancer. Right now, we’re funding around £23 million worth of ground-breaking research projects, supporting nearly 450 of the world’s brightest researchers at more than 30 institutions across the UK and Ireland. Together, they’re working to discover how to prevent breast cancer, how to detect it earlier and how to treat it effectively at every stage so we can stop the disease taking lives.
Everything we do is rooted in the realities of women affected by breast cancer. We’re the catalyst that connects the laboratory bench with the hospital bedside, the GP’s office, the MP’s surgery and the policies that govern our health service. And it’s only by working together that we’ll truly make an impact on this devastating disease.
If we all act now, we believe that by 2050 everyone who develops breast cancer will live. We need to invest at least £300 million in research over the next 10 years if we’re to achieve these ambitious goals. Please join us and help support vital research into breast cancer now.
