Against Breast Cancer is the story of the personal crusade of our founders Dr Anthony Leathem and his wife Patricia in their search for a future free of breast cancer.
Our expert scientists use one of the largest collections of breast cancer patient samples in the UK to look for vital information that could identify the spread of the disease.
Against Breast Cancer’s research looks at the whole woman through three interlinked areas of research - biochemistry, immunology, and diet and lifestyle. The charity’s research is studying new ways that could help doctors identify and treat secondary breast cancer faster and more effectively.
The charity’s national Diet & Lifestyle study is one of the largest in the world looking at the effects of diet, lifestyle and complementary treatments on breast cancer and long-term survival. Support is vital for Against Breast Cancer if it is to continue its innovative research to develop ways to improve detection and survival after diagnosis so women and men can look forward to a future free of breast cancer.
