Who We Are
We are an independent charity that supports innovative breast cancer research across the UK.
We aim to help beat breast cancer and save lives by supporting ground-breaking research.
Through our fundraising we support research organisations to develop and run breast cancer research programmes. These programmes enable huge steps to be taken in improving the prevention and treatment of breast cancer – the most common type of cancer in the UK.
Research has led to great strides being made in improving the prevention and treatment of breast cancer. It is thanks to research that 78% of women survive breast cancer for 10 years or more.
Our Recent Work
The ICR is one of the world’s most influential research organisations. They are the world leaders in identifying cancer genes, discovering cancer drugs and developing precision radiotherapy.

Campaign About The Awareness Of Breast Cancer
BREAST CANCER RESEARCH AID
HELP TO FIGHT WITH BREAST CANCER
The research supported by Breast Cancer Research Aid, is expanding our knowledge of breast cancer and changing the way we treat it. A donation from you could help us continue to support this vital work.
Right now breast cancer is at a tipping point. More women are surviving. But more are being diagnosed than ever. And every 45 minutes, another woman dies from the disease. If we all act now, by 2050, we believe everyone who develops the disease will live.
Your support helps us to fund life-saving research into the causes, prevention and treatment of cancer. When you give money you help our scientists get closer to finding a cure.
Working with Cancer Research Institutes Across the Country
Cardiff University/European Cancer Stem Cell Research InstituteThanks to the support of Breast Cancer Research Aid, scientists here at Cardiff University’s European Cancer Stem Cell Research Institute are able to carry out world-leading research which has the potential to revolutionise the way we tackle cancer. By improving our understanding of how and why different cancers grow and spread, we aim to develop new and effective therapies which will make a real difference to the lives of cancer patients - and your support will help us to get there faster.
THE INSTITUTE OF CANCER RESEARCH (ICR), LONDONBreast Cancer Research Aid’s support of the work carried out at The Institute of Cancer Research, London, helps ensure discoveries made in our laboratories lead to new treatments for breast cancer. At the ICR we discover new cancer drugs and combination therapies. We uncover new insights into the causes of breast cancer and how it becomes resistant to treatment, and we develop novel ways to image tumours. But to embark on our innovative research, we need your support. This is where Breast Cancer Research Aid plays such an important role. Through your funding, our scientists are able to continue their research with access to the latest technology and cutting-edge infrastructure. This will allow them to continue making significant steps towards improving the lives of breast cancer patients around the world.
