CHARITY OF THE MONTH – Breast Cancer Now

Latest figures show one in two of us will get cancer at some time in our lives and we have all felt its effects over the years.

For Rebecca Gough the experience was very new and very close.

Best friend

She said: “I lost my best friend to breast cancer on Boxing Day. It was devastating and what made it all the worse was that she left behind a six-year-old daughter.

We had been very close friends for eight years and at her funeral the family asked for donations to go to the Breast Cancer Now charity so I decided to try to get a little more money for them by nominating them as charity of the month.

Thank you to everyone who contributed.”

Dedicated

In 2019 the charity merged with Breast Cancer Care to become a single charity dedicated to helping everyone affected by breast cancer.

It helps to fund 340 experts in the field of breast cancer research, engaged in 80 separate projects across the UK costing £26 million.

Expertly trained nurses and voluntary staff offer all the support needed by anyone trying to cope with the physical and emotional impacts of the disease.

The charity campaigns constantly to improve breast cancer services.
