There’s an estimated 61,000 people in the UK living with secondary breast cancer. That’s why we’re funding vital research to give those with this incurable type of the disease more time to live their lives to the fullest.
Our new film features 9 women sharing their experiences of secondary breast cancer, and what more time would mean to them.
What research are we doing into secondary breast cancer?
Secondary breast cancer occurs when breast cancer cells spread from the first (primary) cancer in the breast, through the lymphatic or blood system, to other parts of the body.
Our researchers are here working to buy more time for people with secondary breast cancer.
We're Breast Cancer Now. We’re here to change the lives of people affected by breast cancer. How? By combining the power of research and support.
Our world-class researchers are working in labs across the UK and Ireland to create a world where the words "breast cancer" aren't met with fear. We're building a brighter future for everyone affected by breast cancer.
And because over 600,000 people are living with or beyond the disease, we’re here with support for today, too. Our helpline, health information, and support services are here for you and your loved ones. Every step of the way.
We’re the place to turn for anything and everything to do with breast cancer. Whatever you’re going through. Whoever you are. We’re here.
We align with the following UN Sustainable Development Goals:
