When breast cancer spreads to other parts of the body from the breast, it is called secondary breast cancer. At this stage, although it can be managed, it is incurable. We believe research holds the key to saving these lives.
Our researchers work tirelessly to understand what we need to do to stop secondary breast cancer in its tracks.
Our research into secondary breast cancer covers many different topics, from understanding how secondary breast cancer develops and looking for ways to prevent it, to finding better treatments and better ways to support people with the disease. And beyond this research which focuses on developing new treatments specifically designed for secondary breast cancer, we also hope that further areas of breast cancer research that we fund could also lead to new treatments that women with secondary breast cancer could benefit from.
Here are some examples of research happening right now:

Breast cancer is affecting more of us than ever before. Every day, around 150 people in the UK hear the words ‘it’s breast cancer’. To stop people dying from the disease, we need to understand it better. We need research.
And we always want to do so much more, but we can’t without your help.
