To stop breast cancer for good by improving early diagnosis, developing new treatments and preventing all types of breast cancer

Breakthrough Breast Cancer

About us

We’re determined to end breast cancer – once and for all

Breast cancer is the most common cancer in the UK. One in eight women will face it, and nearly 700,000 people living in the UK today have experienced a diagnosis.

Research has made huge progress over the last 25 years, but breast cancer is a growing problem. More women than ever are getting the disease, and we predict that 185,000 lives will be lost to breast cancer by 2030.

If we’re going to stop this, we must act now.

Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer have joined forces to become the UK’s largest dedicated breast cancer research charity.

Our aim is that by 2050, no one will die from breast cancer. We’ll do this by finding ways to prevent the disease, improving early diagnosis and developing new treatments for all types of breast cancer. We will be launching with a new name and look in summer 2015.

Bringing together everyone affected by breast cancer, and all those who dedicate themselves to stopping the disease, we are here to make progress happen – until the day we end breast cancer, once and for all.
