Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle 2023 - National Breast Cancer Research Institute
Breast Cancer is most common cancer among women in Ireland (excluding skin cancers). Currently, 1 in 7 Irish women will be diagnosed with breast cancer before 75 years of age and there are 3,507 cases diagnosed annually which is set to continue to increase. These women are our mothers, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, friends and neighbours. We know these women, they play major roles in our lives.
The National Breast Cancer Research Institute is a national charity that funds a comprehensive research programme at the University of Galway and relies on charitable donations like that of Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle 2023 to ensure this programme is continually developed. We know that breast cancer research has improved the diagnosis, treatment options, and outcomes for those who develop the disease. We want to fund these research programmes to continue to impact the outcomes for those who develop the disease in the future.
Breast cancer makes up 23% of all cancer survivors, the greatest proportion of cancer survivors in Ireland. Research is essential to improving outcomes for patients. The research team, in collaboration with universities and hospitals across the globe, focuses on the development and improvement of diagnostic techniques and treatment strategies, to drive real and measurable improvement in clinical outcomes for breast cancer patients.
With the help of donations received by the Ring of Kerry Charity Cycle 2023, we can positively impact the future for women in Ireland.
