The Karen Henderson Legacy Fund has raised an incredible £31,297 to date.

Make 2nds Count is a patient and family focused charity dedicated to giving hope to women and men living with secondary breast cancer.

We strive to do this by raising awareness and funding medical research that will contribute to advancing an increased quality of life for patients. Our community programme supports patients and families affected by this incurable disease.

Secondary breast cancer, also known as metastatic, advanced or stage IV breast cancer, is a cancer that has spread beyond the breast to other parts of the body. Parts of the body affected are usually the bones, liver, lungs, brain or the skin. 

Secondary breast cancer can be treated but it cannot be cured. Treatments aim to control and slow down the disease to enable patients to have the best possible quality of life for as long as possible.

Together we can Make 2nds Count.
