Breast Cancer Now is the UK’s largest breast cancer charity, created by the merger of Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

For more than 25 years, our two charities were committed to funding the very best in breast cancer research, investing over £170 million in world-class projects and programmes.

We began to answer some of the biggest questions about breast cancer. From launching one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive studies into the causes of the disease, to establishing two UK firsts – a dedicated breast cancer research centre and a national breast cancer tissue bank – we helped change the way breast cancer was researched in the UK.

Although we made enormous progress, it became clear we could do more for everyone affected by breast cancer if we did it together, as one new charity. Now, we’re on the cusp of something life-changing.

We’re determined to fill every last gap in our understanding of the disease. We’re better equipped than ever before to fund the world’s brightest researchers. We’re unafraid to ask the big questions – and we’ll work tirelessly to answer them.

At our heart we have a clear aim. To stop women dying from breast cancer. But it’s only by standing together – the scientists, the fundraisers, families, colleagues and campaigners – that we’ll make it happen.

By 2050, we believe everyone who develops breast cancer will live – but only if we all act now. 

It’s time to come together. It’s time to stop breast cancer now. Join us!
