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

Our history

For more than 25 years, our two charities were committed to funding the very best in breast cancer research across prevention, diagnosis, treatments and secondary breast cancer. Our ambition was simple, and it was shared: to find a way to stop women dying from breast cancer.

We made some truly incredible advances. But it became clear we could do more for everyone affected by breast cancer if we did it together, as Breast Cancer Now. We’re a new charity with a new approach. And now, we’re on the cusp of something life-changing.

Our ambition is that by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live.

We’re acting now to end breast cancer – funding research, finding answers and bringing together everyone affected by 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. We’re determined to fill every last gap in our understanding of breast cancer.

We know we will never eradicate breast cancer completely, but we can find ways to prevent it, detect it and treat it so effectively that no one dies from it ever again. But it’s only by standing together – the scientists, the fundraisers, families, colleagues and campaigners – that we’ll make it happen.

It’s time to come together. It’s time to end breast cancer now.
