Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer was established in 2000 by Veronica Kumeta and the late Sue Macmaster, after their friend Carol Knaggs was diagnosed with Breast Cancer. Having raised money for Breast Cancer before the idea was to control where the money went, rather than giving it to national charities, so we contacted the Queen Elizabeth Birmingham and started working exclusively with them. Since 2000, Ladies Fight Breast Cancer has given over £1 million to the QE’s Cancer Unit, which has helped fund new medical equipment and create a ‘centre of excellence’.

Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer
Registered Charity No. 1169007
1 St Paul’s Square
We have helped fund equipment such as a Mobile Mammogram Trailer to allow up to ten women an hour to be x-rayed in their local area; an Ultra Sound Scanner for diagnosing breast disease; a Cooling Cap to reduce hair loss during treatment; and a Faxitron X-Ray Machine that enables microscopic clarity during biopsies.
Supporting West Midlands
With a packed calendar of fundraising activities, all of the money stays within the West Midlands, helping Breast Cancer patients within a 70-mile radius of the hospital. This means if you donate money to us, you can see exactly where it’s going and how it’s being spent.
Helping Front Line Services
With one person every 10 minutes being diagnosed with the cancer in the UK, it’s important to fund front-line services to ensure that patients are getting the best possible treatment.
