Registered Charity No: 1160558 (England & Wales), SC045584 (Scotland).
Right now, an estimated 600,000 people are living with or after a breast cancer diagnosis in the UK. And every year we lose over 11,500 lives to the disease. That’s someone every 45 minutes. Nowadays, more people are being diagnosed than ever before. That’s someone’s mother, daughter, sister, wife or friend.
It doesn’t have to be this way. It’s our belief that by 2050, everyone diagnosed with breast cancer will live – and be supported to live well. But we need to act now.
We’re Breast Cancer Now, the charity that’s steered by world-class research and powered by life-changing care. We’re here for anyone affected by breast cancer, the whole way through, providing support for today and hope for the future.
Breast Cancer Now merged with the support charity Breast Cancer Care in April 2019, bringing together our combined heritage and expertise to create something stronger than ever before. We’re now the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, providing expert support and funding vital research.
Built on the foundations of previous research charities Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer, we’re the expert authority on breast cancer research making breakthroughs and driving forward progress. We’re that trusted friend you turn to for caring support when you need it most. And we’re acting now to make sure anyone affected by breast cancer gets the best possible treatment and care.
Gifts in wills can help to make sure our vital work can continue in the future so that everyone who develops breast cancer lives – and is supported to live well. Find out more at breastcancernow.org
