Last week, it was announced that Breast Cancer Now and Breast Cancer Care will merge into one charity early next year. The merger means that the charities will be uniting in their ambition to ensure that, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live and receive the support they need. Both charities do incredible work, so we look forward to seeing what they will be able to achieve together.
At Prevent Breast Cancer, we’re the only charity in the UK that focuses solely on the prediction and prevention of breast cancer. Our roots are firmly in Manchester, and although we are a small charity, we pride ourselves on funding ground-breaking research in an area that other charities don’t focus as much on.
We are here for women and men who have important decisions to make about their future, for those who may not otherwise qualify for breast screening, and for those who have real concerns about their risk of developing breast cancer. Based in the Nightingale Centre in Wythenshawe Hospital, Europe’s first purpose-built prevention centre, we are at the forefront of preventative research, where we will stay until we have freed the world of the disease altogether.
