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.
Throughout lockdown we were able to lift the spirits of 100 secondary breast cancer patients who received their very own littlelifts chemotherapy boxes funded by us here at Make 2nds Count.
These boxes have been filled with items specially selected to help those living with secondary breast cancer. As a result of the success of the initial pilot of this support programme we are happy to let you know that we are funding another round of littlelifts boxes.
If you are a secondary breast cancer patient or know a patient who you think deserve a special treat, request your box
