Drink tea. Raise money. Change lives.

This August, thousands of amazing fundraisers will dust off their whisks, stick the kettle on, and hold an Afternoon Tea to raise money for Breast Cancer Now. Will you join us?

How can we help you?

We’re helping patients and healthcare professionals spot the signs and symptoms of secondary breast cancer.

It's important to get to know your breasts. Check your breasts regularly and see your GP if you notice any changes.

We focus on four key areas of research: risk and prevention, early detection and diagnosis, treatment and secondary breast cancer.

Information and support for men with breast cancer

If you’re a man facing breast cancer, we’re here. We're designing this page in collaboration with men affected by breast cancer, to bring together information and support that you might find helpful.
