financing the fight against breast cancer.



Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer is entirely financially reliant on donations, fundraising and funding itself has delivered critical care in the community to more than 200 women every year, whilst also raising more than £1.5million for the QE Hospital Trust over the past 20 years.

The charity, whose patron is Lord Digby Jones of Birmingham, was started 20 years in late June, by Chief Operating Officer Veronica Kumeta, who wanted to support her best friends’ fight against breast cancer.

Spurred on by her grief and sheer determination to increase awareness and treatment success rates, Veronica and her small team of volunteers focused heavily on fundraising specifically to purchase specialist equipment for the QE.

Since then LFBC has raised more than £1.5m funding two mobile mammogram units, including the UK’s first ever pink one.

Funds raised by LFBC has also been used to purchase high-specification, leading edge equipment; an investment which supports the QE’s position as a Centre of Excellence for breast cancer diagnosis.

LFBC runs a series of events each year, raising funds specifically for the QE Hospital Trust.
