It shouldn't end with treatment

We know that treatment can have a life-changing impact on physical and emotional wellbeing. Women are being left without ongoing support, meaning that side effects including anxiety and depression are far too common.

With more than 691,000 people living with and beyond breast cancer in the UK and numbers set to rise, it is vital that care post-treatment is put at the top of the agenda.

Ask your local politician to campaign for #CareAfterBreastCancer.
