Why fundraise for us?Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. One in eight women will face it in their lifetime, and each year 50,000 women are diagnosed and 12,000 women die from the disease. Research has made huge progress over the last 25 years, but more women than ever are getting breast cancer, and we predict that 185,000 lives will be lost to breast cancer by 2030. We must rise to this challenge, and we must do so now.
In spring 2015, we will join forces with Breakthrough Breast Cancer to form the largest dedicated breast cancer research charity in the UK. We will be committed to ending breast cancer, once and for all. Our aim is that by 2050 no one will die from breast cancer. We will do this by finding ways to prevent the disease, improving early diagnosis and developing new treatments for all types of breast cancer. United, we will be a stronger, more effective force committed to putting an end to breast cancer. United, we will achieve our shared ambition that by 2050 no one will die from the disease.
And we’ve never needed your support more. Please join us on this exciting journey. You are our future. And together we will put an end to breast cancer, once and for all.
