Fundraisers

Fundraisers

We cannot thank our fundraisers and donors enough. They run through mud, eat cake, run, climb and cycle for us. Without them we would not be able to invest in education and research into this disease.


In August 2016 myself and some members of our support groups were given a fascinating tour of the laboratories and tissue bank at Birmingham University School of Cancer Sciences. We were also delighted to hand over a cheque for £25,000 towards inflammatory breast cancer research that is taking place there.
So many of you have done extraordinary things to enable this to happen and we thank you very much! We have already started fundraising for this research into immunotherapy in IBC to continue so please keep us in your thoughts!
