Thanks to research, we’ve made huge advances in how we treat and prevent breast cancer. Drugs are now more effective than ever before. But there’s a problem: too many life-extending and life-saving drugs aren’t getting to the patients who need them. We take a closer look at the work we have done to date to try to make getting drugs to patients a priority in our latest blog > http://bit.ly/1IwDT9S

15,000 women signed up on day one and just over ten years later, we have more than 113,000 participants. This makes the Generations Study the world’s largest epidemiological study looking at finding out the causes of breast cancer.

The landmark +Breakthrough Breast Cancer  study set out to find the root causes of breast cancer by observing these participants over a long period of time in order to determine whether exposure to certain genetic, lifestyle and hormonal factors may be linked to the development of the disease. Having already uncovered a wealth of valuable information, the study can only be expected to yield more over it's remaining 30 years.

Our office is closed tomorrow as we’re packing up boxes and moving to our new home with Breakthrough Breast Cancer, who we are joining forces with to become the UK’s largest dedicated breast cancer research charity in the UK. We will have no access to telephones while the move takes place but you can still email us on supportercare@breastcancercampaign.org and we will get back to you as soon as we’re settled in on Monday. If you send an email during this time and get a bounce-back, please re-send the message on Monday or it will not be received. More details can be found here: http://bit.ly/1CrJD3l Have a lovely weekend :)
We will be out of contact until Monday when we will be in our new offices. Please update your records

In November 2014, we announced we are merging with Breakthrough Breast Cancer, to form the UK’s largest dedicated funder of breast cancer research. This spring we officially become the new charity so wanted to update you on the steps we have been taking ahead of this. As well as moving into our new office next week, Lynne Berry OBE has been appointed as the new Chair of Trustees and we are delighted to announce that this week, the new Chief Executive was also appointed. Baroness Delyth Morgan has enjoyed a full and varied career, which has included key roles at both Campaign and Breakthrough, and is delighted to be leading this new charity:
“This job to me is both professional and personal. It is a great honour and leadership challenge to have been selected to lead these two great charities, merging into one to finally end breast cancer.” Read more: http://bit.ly/1FATZ1Q

It’s time. Time to come together, to do whatever it takes, however we can. To fund research and find answers. To stop this devastating disease in its tracks. Following our successful merger with +Breakthrough Breast Cancer, we're delighted to inform you that we will be announcing our new name, look and feel on Monday! Read more > http://bit.ly/1JO3vRd

You may notice a couple of subtle changes to the page over the next few days in the lead up, and hope that you'll stay tuned for the big reveal smile emoticon One thing you can be sure of is our defining aim, as it remains the same: to make sure that, by 2050, no one will die from breast cancer. Have a lovely weekend, from all at Breast Cancer Campaign and Breakthrough Breast Cancer

Leading scientists have identified a possible key to preventing secondary cancers in breast cancer patients, after discovering an enzyme which enhances the spread of the disease.

The pioneering research, part-funded by +Asda's Tickled Pink, could lead to a better prognosis for cancer patients in the longer term. Dr Alison Gartland, who co-led this research, explains more about her work at the University of Sheffield’s Department of Human Metabolism in this video.

If asked to name a gene associated with breast cancer, most people would probably say either BRCA1 or BRCA2. And understandably so, as BRCA genes have become synonymous with the genetics of breast cancer due to celebrities like Angelina Jolie and TV soap storylines raising awareness of them. However, research into breast cancer genetics extends way beyond BRCA, and scientists are learning more and more about how different genes influence a person’s risk of breast cancer. What’s more, research is uncovering new breast cancer genes, one of which is named PALB2. In our latest blog, Richard from our Research Comms team, explains why identifying new breast cancer susceptibility genes like this is vital in our quest to beat the disease, once and for all: http://bit.ly/1E3vYLU

Dr Erik Sahai is up against a great challenge: ‘Lobular breast cancer’ accounts for up to 15% of breast cancer cases and not enough is known about the way in which it spreads through the body. Erik looks to understand more about this so that we can stop it and ultimately help as many women as possible to overcome and outlive the disease. He came to Campaign HQ just before Christmas to tell us about his work: http://bit.ly/171kNe9
Research Comms' Katie reports back on Dr Erik Sahai's talk at Campaign HQ on his work looking at cells in lobular breast cancer
