Breast Cancer Care is committed to improving the treatment, support and
care of people affected by breast cancer. Our campaigning work is guided and informed by the views and experiences of people living with breast cancer.
- Spotlight on Secondary Breast Cancer
People living with secondary breast cancer often do not receive the best possible standard of care. We’re campaigning to improve this.
- My Body, Myself
We know that body image and intimacy issues are important for many people affected by breast cancer. We’re looking at how we can improve information and support in this area.
- Standards of care for younger women with breast cancer
Together with breast cancer specialists and younger women, Breast Cancer Care has developed standards of care for younger women with breast cancer. They include the care and support that all younger women with breast cancer should receive, and the important topics they may want to discuss with their treatment team.
- Older people with breast cancer
Older people with breast cancer have poorer relative survival rates. We’re highlighting the need to improve early diagnosis and ensure optimum treatment for this group, as well as the importance of addressing support and information needs.
- Access to treatment
We want to ensure all breast cancer patients have access to the optimum treatment for them. We’re looking at how changes to the way drugs are funded may have an impact on people affected by breast cancer.

Tabled by Annette Brooke MP, one of the co-chairs of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Breast Cancer, MPs used the opportunity to raise a number of issues facing people living with secondary breast cancer. Encouragingly, the government responded during the debate, recognising the need to do more to support people with a secondary breast cancer diagnosis.
