We know that breast cancer survival in the UK lags behind the best countries in Europe. If we brought our breast cancer survival rates in line with the best in Europe it is estimated that 1,000 more lives a year could be saved in England alone. That’s just over one in ten of the women who die from breast cancer each year.
At Breakthrough we know more has to be done; by lobbying and influencing politicians, health care professionals and with petitions, we can help. We have to bridge the gap in breast cancer survival and we need your support. Help us change lives and shape futures by pledging your support and signing up to our Save More Lives campaign.
Yes we have made improvements to our services over the last 20 years. But breast cancer isn’t a done deal and we still have a long way to go before we can claim success.
