62,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer every year. Unfortunately Breast Cancer Care is currently only able to support 1 in 10 of these women with our face to face services.
The Care Collective is a group of extraordinary supporters, who have come together to accelerate Breast Cancer Care to be there for every woman facing breast cancer with the care, support and information she needs. The Collective has an ambition to double the number of people we support through Breast Cancer Care's valuable face to face services by 2020. In order to do this, we need to raise £1.5 million.
Help make the difference for more people going through breast cancer
Having experienced breast cancer, I totally understand that the expert face to face support Breast Cancer Care provides can offer a real lifeline to those women who are able to access it. But too many women don’t currently receive the emotional support they need both during and after their treatment. Please join The Care Collective and help make this invaluable support available to every single woman who needs it.

Many of us will have watched mothers, daughters, wives, sisters go through this devastating disease, and like me, will have felt utterly helpless. Joining The Care Collective has allowed me to finally take back some control and do something positive that I know will help so many women. Please join me and the rest of The Collective now, and help Breast Cancer Care to be there for every single woman facing breast cancer. Together we can make a real and lasting difference to thousands of women’s lives.
