We need your support to get our prevention message across to politicians and public health officials. Breast Cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in the UK. Despite welcome improvements in diagnosis and treatment, efforts to prevent breast cancer have stalled. Yet, over a quarter of breast cancers could be averted if prevention was put at the forefront of policy making and public health practice.
We work to shape policy making to prevent breast cancer by improving consumer protections, promoting cancer prevention policies and advocating for a precautionary approach. To get our message across to policy makers we cover a range of policy areas including: chemicals, public health policy and environmental pollution.
We’re calling on the Government to establish a Breast Cancer Prevention Strategy, which prioritises the primary prevention of the disease, thereby broadening the current focus on secondary prevention, early diagnosis and search for a cure.
A donation of just £10 can help us reach women with educational information and guidance on how they can reduce their chances of getting breast cancer.
A donation of £25 can help provide a Breast Cancer Prevention kit to help our Ambassadors deliver talks, providing healthy lifestyle advice and practical tips that can help people reduce their risk of breast cancer.
Your donation of £100 can help train one of our PhD students, who work on vital research which aims to understand the causes of breast cancer and identify risk factors.
