Today the Office for National Statistics (ONS) released the 2012 figures for all cancer cases in England, which completes the set of figures we have for the UK and brings the total of breast cancer cases in the UK to over 50,000 in 2012. You can read the key findings from the ONS release and download detailed statistics on the number of all cancer cases in England on their website.

This is yet another reminder that our work to overcome breast cancer is not done, which is why we have launched our Spread the word’ campaign. We need your help to send a clear message to politicians across the country that breast cancer should be on their agenda for the next general election and beyond. It only takes two minutes to email your MP and spread the word.
