Who we are and why we’re here… for you
If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer; someone you love has been diagnosed, or you want to start taking preventative measures to lower you risk of breast cancer, you have come to the right place.
More than just pink ribbons
At the Breast Cancer Partnership we know there is more to beating Breast Cancer than just medically treating the disease; instead we want to help you recover completely by creating wellness. Wellness of mind, body and spirit. We believe breast cancer care and recovery should follow an integrated approach to help you face and overcome any aspect of the disease. We believe this type of care gives every woman the very best chance to recover from breast cancer.
In the UK researching breast cancer can bring up some very scary statistics, with 45,000 cases being diagnosed each year, that’s 1 woman in every 8 – who will be told that she has breast cancer. Our aim is to reduce this number by emphasising the risk factors that can increase your chances of developing cancer, whilst equipping women who have been diagnosed with a personal recovery plan. The plan should include appropriate medicines and medical procedures, nutrition, exercise, stress management along with emotional support whether its from us, your family or your friends.
Want to get involved?
We are called the Breast Cancer Partnership because we believe that everyone has to come together to beat breast cancer. We work with a number of other cancer charities already, and would love to work with more.
We talk with businesses and organisations because we know they have a significant role to play in tackling diseases and creating wellness. They can do this through their products and services, by supporting their employees and through talking with their customers.
And of each one of you plays the biggest part. You support us with donations, fundraise for us and talk to and about us. Because taking care of your own health and making sure others know how to do the same makes our job easier and your life better. Thank you.
Please visit ‘What you can do’ or get in touch by emailing if you want to get involved.
