A promising finding from a new UK study has shown that a lot more breast cancers are genetically similar to tumours caused by inherited BRCA1 or BRCA2 gene mutations than previously realised, even though the mutations were not inherited - meaning upcoming treatments designed for BRCA tumours could be effective for many more breast cancers as well.

NBCF’s fundraising event last night for breast cancer research was a smashing success!

Hearing from Sinead Forbes on her personal experience with breast cancer, the amazing performances from Patrick Roberts on violin, and excellent MCing from Natalie Barr made the night one to remember.

We know that research is the only way to stop deaths from breast cancer and thanks to the generosity of our supporters who attended the event we can continue to invest in vital research.
