Life Cycle 6 - support our breast cancer research

Help us raise £1 million to beat breast cancer 

Every day, in the UK, 140 women are told "you have breast cancer". Around the world, 10,000 women die from the disease every week. 

Our professors in Nottingham and Derby are working on innovative research to detect breast cancer early, stop it spreading and to develop treatments that will help save lives. We've made breast cancer the focus for Nottingham Life Cycle 6 - our annual fundraising campaign. 

You can cycle, bake, dance or organise your own event - whatever you do, 100% of every penny raised will go direct to our research. Together, we can save lives.

Together, we have raised over £540,000 so far towards our £1 million target. Please help us reach our goal.

Now you can help our award-winning breast cancer research teams tackle the disease at every stage. Discover our innovative work to:

Meet the women behind our #BreastCancerAndMe campaign

Four women – Lisa, Caroline, Leanne and Sue – are at the  heart of our #BreastCancerAndMe campaign.

At different stages in their breast cancer journeys, they give us an insight into what it's like to live with breast cancer – from diagnosis and treatment to looking to the future and what the life-changing research at Nottingham and Derby means to them.

Real women. Real stories. Real hope.
