Two charities, one vision. Dress smart to help us get smart with animal free research into the prevention of breast cancer.
Funding innovative animal free breast cancer research
Get Your Frock On! is a partnership between Animal Free Research UK and Breast Cancer UK. Weâ€™re changing the way that charities work by combining our expertise to fund animal free research into the prevention of breast cancer.
The money raised from â€˜Get Your Frock On!â€™ will fund a ground breaking three-year research project, looking at the impact of environmental chemicals on high breast density, a major risk factor for breast cancer.
We are both small charities with a huge vision.
Over 55,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer every year and incidence rates are rising.Â Â A women’s lifetime risk of breast cancer has risen from 1 in 9 to 1 in 8 women in just 15 years.
In 2016, nearly four million animals were used in medical research, however much of this research is less effective when translated to humans and most of the animals are destroyed afterwards.
Animal Free Research UKâ€™s mission is to replace the use of animals in all medical research.
Breast Cancer UK works to prevent breast cancer by tackling the environmental and chemical causes of the disease.
Together, the two charities have bold plans to change our understanding of breast cancer prevention. Itâ€™s a simple ask with a serious message.
So whoever you are letâ€™s get our frocks on to beat breast cancer and save animals.
