Registered Charity No: 272214 (England & Wales).
The treatment and management of breast cancer has been revolutionised in the last 43 years since I became President of the Breast Cancer Research Trust. The death rate has fallen by 30% in the U.K. and many patients now experience a personal cure. This in the main has been due to unremitting and time consuming research not only into new drugs and ways of diagnosing, assessing and treating patients but into the causes of breast cancer itself.
It gives me great pleasure to state that to date, we have raised over four million pounds, which has enabled us to support forty major research centres throughout the United Kingdom. The Breast Cancer Research Trust is a charity dedicated to funding clinically based laboratory project research, undertaken in recognised cancer centres or research institutions in the UK, directly aimed at improving the prevention, early diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. 100% of all donations go towards this vital research as the Trust is run on a purely voluntary basis.
The great advances that have been made in the treatment and management of breast cancer have been achieved by the dedicated efforts of all the professionals working in this vital field.
By helping us, you are giving aid and hope to all women who develop this particular cancer.
President - Dame Vera Lynn DBE, LLD, Mmus
