The number of women who will die from breast cancer each year in the United Kingdom is expected to rise within four years if adequate government action is not taken.

In light of these findings, Breast Cancer Now has launched a dedicated #55000Reasons campaign calling on the UK Government to prioritise breast cancer in the forthcoming NHS long-term plan and ensure that related services get the funding they need.
