Friday, 21st October - Breast Cancer Campaign

Today's charity is Breast Cancer Care, as October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. I read somewhere that Vanish will donate £1 to them if you "like" them on facebook which I duly did. do you participate?


Where do we come from?

Campaign was established in 1988 with the aim of researching the cure for breast cancer. The charity aims to be the leading specialist in breast cancer research across the UK and Ireland, making a significant impact on breast cancer for the benefit of patients.

What differentiates Campaign from other charities?

Breast Cancer Campaign only funds research into breast cancer and will support research at any centre of excellence in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. The charity has a particular interest in supporting innovative research and will fund the best breast cancer research in the UK and Ireland, providing that it is of the highest quality.

What are we doing?

We currently support 105 research projects, worth over £17.3 million in 31 centres of excellence across the UK and Ireland.

What have we done?

In its lifetime the charity has awarded 340 grants with a total value of over £37 million to universities, medical schools and research institutes across the UK and now also in Ireland.

Why do we use the jigsaw logo?

Our logo is the jigsaw piece because it symbolises the missing piece of the puzzle that is the cure for breast cancer. In the same way that breast cancer is not one disease, there will not be one cure. Each research project is another piece of the puzzle that we hope will ultimately offer all women with breast cancer effective diagnosis and treatment and eventually help us prevent the disease.
