Around the world, a lot of effort is made researching new drugs and treatments for breast cancer. At Prevent Breast Cancer, our philosophy is different, for we believe that prevention is better than cure.
We want to see a world where there is no before or after diagnosis.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer for women in the UK. Every day, 153 people are diagnosed and despite advances in treatment there are still 11,500 people dying of breast cancer in the UK each year.
Through our research, we believe we can stop breast cancer before it starts. And being situated at the only breast cancer prevention centre in the UK, we’re right at the front line in the fight against the disease.
We are the only UK breast cancer charity entirely dedicated to funding ground-breaking research solely aimed at preventing the disease for future generations.
We have been a registered charity since 1997 and since that time have awarded over £4.9 million to breast cancer prevention research. It’s important to mention that we never fund research that involves animal testing.
