Giving Tuesday

#GivingTuesday is the day to do good stuff for charity. In 2015, according to the Charities Aid Foundation (CAF), #GivingTuesday raised £6,000 a minute for UK charities.

Your support is already fuelling the vital research that will mean, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live. You've helped to fund over 600,000 hours of research in the last 12 months. Researchers funded by you have made some really important breakthroughs, including a new genetic test that will identify patients at high risk of their breast cancer returning. Thank you.

But breast cancer research doesn’t stand still. Around 50,000 women are still diagnosed with breast cancer each year. That’s one woman every 10 minutes.

There’s still much more to be done to stop breast cancer spreading and becoming deadly – the stage of the disease known as secondary breast cancer. Every year around 11,500 women and 80 men die from breast cancer – that’s nearly 1,000 deaths each month. One woman every 45 minutes has her life cut short by the disease.

We can’t live with that. It’s time to act. Please commit to doing good stuff this #GivingTuesday and donate now to help fund the future of research. We believe that if we all act now, by 2050, everyone who develops breast cancer will live.

Professor Clare Isacke and her team at the Breast Cancer Now Toby Robins Research Centre have created their lab version of the mannequin challenge for Giving Tuesday. Don’t let breast cancer research stand still. Your donation now can help our scientists save lives tomorrow.
