A message from Breast International Group's Honorary President

Finding a cure is one of the biggest challenges faced by researchers from around the world. Breast cancer affects women and men of all ages. This is why prevention is crucial. When breast cancer is diagnosed, the impact on a patient’s life and loved ones is devastating and causes intense stress. Appropriate psychological and moral support is needed and can really make a big difference.

It is crucial to identify the most appropriate and personalised therapies to increase the chances of recovery and cure. BIG fosters collaboration among the world's leading experts in breast cancer and advances research. This is essential to give hope to everyone concerned.  - HRM the Queen of the Belgians, Honorary President of Breast International Group

A message from BIG against breast cancer's President

There are many areas of research that hold great promise for patients but have no particular interest for commercial partners.

That is why BIG develops and runs academic studies that hold tremendous potential for patients and promise long-term gains for society, in all regions of the world. Thanks to our global network of breast cancer experts, we can run these trials more efficiently.
