I don't know what I would have done without Breast Cancer Now. From day one they were my support, from the Helpline through to the BECCA app. They've been my shoulder to cry on, when I didn't even realise how much I needed it.

Making life-saving research happen

We fund a third of breast cancer research in the UK


Our research projects are happening at 33 locations in 24 cities in the UK and Ireland, and four international locations in Europe.

The Breast Cancer Now Tissue Bank


Our Tissue Bank provides samples of breast tissue to researchers so they have the tools to discover how real breast tumours act.

The Generations Study


This UK wide study follows more than 113,000 women, investigating the genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors that may affect the risk of developing breast cancer.

Our face-to-face services

We want everyone to have the care they deserve, whether they have concerns, have just been diagnosed, or have finished treatment. Our free services offer tailored information and support to anyone affected by breast cancer.
