Breast Cancer Care is an amazing charity dedicated to their vision that every person affected by breast cancer gets the best treatment, information and support possible. They, together with Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action, form Women V Cancer, which first started in 2010 and has since gotten thousands of women cycling in the UK and around the world to support countless women affected by cancer and strive to put an end to the disease.
Here, Breast Cancer Care tells us more about their important work as a reminder of what we do our challenges for.
How many people get breast cancer?
For Breast Cancer Care, all your efforts mean that we can be there with care, support and information when we’re needed most.
About Breast Cancer Care
Breast Cancer Care is the only specialist UK-wide charity providing support for women, men, family and friends affected by breast cancer. We’ve been caring for them, supporting them and campaigning on their behalf since 1973.
We offer a unique range of support including reliable information, one-to-one support over the phone and online from nurses and people who’ve been there. We also offer local group support across the UK.
Just some of the free support services we offer include:
From the moment someone notices something isn’t right, right through their treatment and beyond, we’re there to help people affected by breast cancer feel more in control.
Thank you so much for all your incredible fundraising so far, as well as your hard work getting out and about training and putting in the miles! You’re helping to keep our invaluable support free and making sure we can continue to be there for the people who so desperately need us.
How your sponsorship helps
£5 could give people with breast cancer the vital answers they need right now by funding five invaluable information resources.
£12 could help us maintain our supportive online community and allow people with breast cancer to feel less isolated.
£55 could help a younger woman with breast cancer feel less isolated by attending a residential course with expert information, support and a space to connect with others under the age of 45 with a diagnosis.
£285 could give a woman with breast cancer somewhere to turn to after her treatment, through attending four sessions of a Moving Forward course.
So please don’t stop holding fundraising events, sending your online page around or asking for sponsorship! Thank you again for your fundraising so far - it really does make a huge difference.
