Our strategy (2017-2022)

Breast Cancer Now’s new long-term strategy is designed to take us towards our vision where by 2050, we want everyone who develops breast cancer to live – and live well.

How we will get there

To make our vision a reality we will bring together patients and supporters with researchers and healthcare professionals to fund world-class research, raise awareness and influence progress in the prevention, detection and treatment of breast cancer.

It means we’ll be ready to meet challenges and be a source of ideas and experiences where we share, learn and grow. Because right now, breast cancer is at a tipping point.

More women are surviving, but more are being diagnosed than ever before. And nearly 1,000 women in the UK have their lives cut short by the disease every month.

That’s why we need to act now.

For every woman that outlives breast cancer, our lives are richer and filled with possibility. They remind us to live every day like we mean it, because time matters. They inspire us to stand together – creating a collective force for good.

In a lifetime, we will move from a disease that causes fear and emptiness to a future where everybody who develops breast cancer lives. Now it’s time to work together to make it happen.
