Against Breast Cancer

Charity description

Against Breast Cancer logo
Against Breast Cancer fund unique research into better diagnostic tests,
treatment and lifestyle advice to stop secondary spread.

Against Breast Cancer are working to prevent secondary breast cancer by funding unique research into 3 main areas;
  • - Development of new treatments, ultimately a vaccine that teaches the immune system to recognize and destroy secondary cancer cells
  • - Improving upon current blood tests to monitor cancers and predict metastases earlier
  • - Assessing diet and lifestyle to provide doctors and patients with advice on factors that increase, decrease or do not affect the risk of secondary breast cancer

The funds that supporters like you have raised has enabled the collection and storage of over 23,000 blood and urine samples from thousands of UK breast cancer patients over the past 20 years. This Biobank provides a vital resource for scientists to interrogate and look for clues as to why some people develop secondary breast cancers and some do not.
