Breast Cancer Ireland

Breast Cancer Ireland is a registered charity, established to raise significant funding to support pioneering research programmes nationally, as well as to promote education and awareness on the importance of good breast health amongst women of all ages

Breast Cancer Irelands vision is to transform breast cancer from often being a fatal disease into a treatable long-term illness. Their main goal is to speed up research discovery output so as to affect better and more positive treatment options for patients.

With the help of funds raised by the 100k in 30 days we are helping in many way to endeavour to make this happen. 

Research

While survival rates are improving through screening and awareness campaigns, there is still a lot more to be achieved through dedicated and in-depth research with the help of Breast Cancer Ireland..

Education

BCI promote breast health education to transition year students, teachers nationwide, corporates and clubs. For more information contact smcgregor@bciresearch.ie

Awareness

BCI have an awareness programme rolling out and sessions are available to be booked for schools.

Breast Cancer Ireland Goals

  • To Create a National Bio Bank of patient tissue and serum samples – allowing our Breast Research Nurses, within the designated cancer centres, to collaborate and collate all samples into one large centralised area so that Clinicians and Scientists nationwide can access larger volumes and thereby help speed up research discovery output.
  • To Support the creation of a state of the art Breast Cancer Research Centre, that will be purely translational in appeal, offering patients a bench to bedside experience, with multidisciplinary teams all working under the one roof, offering consultancy, imaging, pathology and clinical trials research.
  • To provide education and awareness on the importance of good breast health for women of all ages, with the provision of our complimentary nationwide service.
