Prof Ingunn Holen for Breast Cancer Campaign

Prof Ingunn Holen, University of Sheffield.  Professor Holen’s expertise is in secondary breast cancer, particularly in the bones. Secondary breast cancer may be treated but cannot be cured.

Welcome and thank you

Your support, as charitable trusts and foundations, is essential to us; without it our influential and life-saving portfolio of research into breast cancer would not exist.

Thank you very much indeed if you are a representative of a trust that supports us and welcome if this is your first contact with us.

We are enormously grateful to our funders, including the Haley Family Charitable Trust and Allergan International Foundation for providing significant contributions to our world-class research.

Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer merger

In November 2014, the Boards of Trustees of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer announced that we have agreed to merge to form one united charity, from April 2015.

Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer are both committed to overcoming breast cancer and our strategic focuses are complementary.  Both charities have set the ambitious but achievable goal that everyone can overcome and outlive breast cancer by 2050. Working together will enable us to achieve this more effectively.    

The plans to merge will not affect the delivery of Campaign’s current programme of research which will continue as planned. The merger has been welcomed by our scientists including the Chair of our Scientific Advisory Board, Gareth Evans, Professor of Medical Genetics and Cancer Epidemiology, University of Manchester.  

Our Research

In 2013 we launched Help us find the Cures, our action plan for the next decade. No other cancer charity, anywhere in the world, has such a clear framework for identifying the research that will enable us to overcome breast cancer by 2050.

One of our priorities is to have a better understanding of who is most at risk of breast cancer and better ways of preventing the disease m developing. Find out more about our breast cancer risk and prevention work.
