Breast Cancer Now

We’re Breast Cancer Now, the UK’s largest breast cancer charity. We believe that if we all act now, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live – and live well.

We are determined to stop women dying from the disease, working in new and collaborative ways, bringing together all those affected by the disease to fund research, share knowledge and find answers. By doing this we can build a better future – one where breast cancer no longer claims the lives of our loved ones, and we’re working hard, every single day, to make it a reality.

Part of making this vision a reality is making sure that you are supported as healthcare professionals. So we’re excited to announce that we have created an online hub dedicated to breast cancer healthcare professionals full of useful breast cancer resources, current news, blogs and upcoming events.

If you work with breast cancer patients, we also encourage you to sign up to our regular healthcare professional e-newsletter to keep up to date and hear about our exciting plans for the future.
