Regular giving for breast cancer research
Regular giving is a gift of progress
The level of disruption Covid-19 has placed on cancer services is unprecedented. Reductions in the number of patients receiving a diagnosis, suspensions of screening services and longer waiting lists for treatment have combined to jeopardise the health of women across the country.
“A great many women are not being diagnosed with breast cancer at the earliest possible opportunity. Many will discover their breast cancer at a point when it is more difficult to treat or has spread to become incurable.”
Professor Ingunn Holen, University of Sheffield
How you can help
During lockdown, Against Breast Cancer researchers provided their expertise to discover how Coronavirus manages to evade the immune system. This knowledge could help to pave the way for the development of a vaccine. Now, as our laboratories begin to reopen our researchers are determined continue their vital work and not to let Covid-19 put at risk achievements that have taken years to accomplish.
Breast cancer research has made great progress, more women than ever are surviving breast cancer and living longer, healthier lives. Much of this work has been funded by individuals, proof that your donations, and in particular regular donations are making an extraordinary difference.
But a great deal of work remains to be done if we are to stop secondary breast cancer from claiming lives.
This is what makes regular giving so important. Your support allows us to continue the challenging long-term projects we are undertaking at some of the UK’s most respected academic institutions.
Your regular giving will support world-class research dedicated to the prevention of secondary breast cancer, improving techniques designed to enable earlier detection and the development of new therapies, including harnessing the body’s natural defences to design more effective treatments. Isn’t that incredible?
Your donation will make a difference
£2 a month could fund research into discovering how diet and lifestyle factors may increase or reduce the risk of secondary breast cancer developing.
£5 a month could fund research discovering biomarkers for the development of new tools to identify risk & early detection of Stage 4 breast cancer.
£10 a month could fund research into developing anti-cancer antibodies that detect and destroy breast cancer cells without damaging surrounding healthy tissue.
Why do we need a regular giving?
Breast cancer remains the most common form of cancer in the UK and research takes time. Together, with your fellow supporters, you will help to ensure we can continue to make progress against breast cancer and ensure more women go on to live longer, healthier lives.
We will not change our commitment of creating a future free from breast cancer and despite the disruption caused by Covid-19, our research goals remain unchanged.
But we cannot do it without you. So please join us by clicking Donate and start your regular giving gift today. Thank you.Donate
