About Prevent Breast Cancer
Prevent Breast Cancer is the only UK charity entirely dedicated to the prediction and prevention of breast cancer. Our research will one day bring about the world where breast cancer is preventable and thousands are saved from ever experiencing this terrible disease. We aim to do this by seed-funding ground breaking research projects that fall under four research pillars, these being: Gene Research, Early Detection and Screening , Preventative Drugs and Diet and Lifestyle. We are based at the University Hospital South Manchester (UHSM). Much of our work is conducted here and also in partnership with several other research facilities in the UK. Our researchers are based at The Nightingale Centre– the first breast cancer centre in Europe entirely dedicated to research into prevention. The Nightingale Centre is a world-class facility leading the way in breast cancer early diagnosis and prevention research. Prevent Breast Cancer collaborates nationally and internationally with the very best experts in the field. Sadly, 1 in 9 women will get breast cancer in their lifetime and it is the most common cancer in the UK (it accounts for 15% of all cancer diagnoses), yet only 3.6% of all cancer research funding is spent on prevention. Despite all of this we receive no government or statutory funding. This is why it is essential that we continue fundraising.
