How will the money raised be used?
Virtual Breast Walk Ever is a campaign by Against Breast Cancer to help fund cutting edge research into secondary spread breast cancer in the UK.
At Oxford University, Against Breast Cancer has established a Fellowship Programme to support and develop young scientists who perform innovative research into increasing survival rates after breast cancer (Professor Crispin was the first such recipient of this award).
They are also working with NHS digital and other partners to make available to other research groups the data, blood and urine samples they’ve collected over a 16 year period. Their diet & lifestyle clinical trial which was the largest of its kind in Europe and involved Against Breast Cancer recruiting over 3000 women all 1 year post diagnosis through a network of 56 NHS hospitals across the UK.
Against Breast Cancer firmly believes that major research advances require a long-term vision. They have committed to support their research team in Oxford and Southampton for the next decade. Pink Ribbon Bingo is proud to be able to their part in ensuring the continued success in the research of secondary spread from breast cancer.
