Against Breast Cancer is the story of the personal crusade of our founders Dr Anthony Leathem and his wife Patricia in their search for a future free of breast cancer.
Today, Against Breast Cancer funds pioneering research by expert clinical scientists at the University of Westminster in London. They use our exceptional collection of breast tissue and patient samples to identify markers that can detect the re-appearance of breast cancer in women already treated for this illness.
Our national Diet & Lifestyle Study of breast cancer survivors involves over 3,300 women in 57 hospitals across the UK. It was adopted by the UK National Clinical Research Network in 2005 and is the largest study of its kind in the world.
