Every year approximately 55,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK, making it the most common cancer. There are 36,000 women living with secondary (incurable) breast cancer. Approximately 350 men are diagnosed with breast cancer every year*.
We’re on a mission to support them by offering a littlelifts box at the beginning of their chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment. We do this by working directly with hospitals in East Anglia, where boxes are given out to patients during treatment planning or review meetings with their Oncology, Radiotherapy or Breast Care Teams.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, we have received a surge in requests from breast cancer patients outside Norfolk and Suffolk enquiring how they can receive a littlelifts box. Thanks to generous support from Spacemasks we are delighted to launch The little Kindness Fund.
The little Kindness Fund is a discretionary fund for women and men undergoing chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment for primary or secondary breast cancer, living in England and Wales. The fund enables eligible applicants to receive a littlelifts box, free of charge, to support their emotional wellbeing and support them through their cancer treatment.
