Future Dreams is raising funds to support women through their breast cancer journey.
FD works on a number of campaigns to create awareness and fund research projects, with a main
focus on secondary breast cancer.
One in two people will be receive a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime and early diagnosis is key to a better prognosis. Breast Cancer is the most common female cancer in the UK and early detection is often lifesaving. Future Dreams' message is very simple today - KNOW YOUR BODY. So if there's one thing you can do today for World Cancer Day it's check your breasts for any abnormalities. Future Dreams has been working with our Ambassador, Helen Addis to support her 'Change and Check Campaign'. Helen launched the campaign to encourage women across the UK to check their breasts by putting stickers on mirrors in women’s changing rooms. Retailers including John Lewis, Asda and Monsoon have taken part and as a result, 21 women have already found lumps and had early treatment thanks to the reminders. Future Dreams has donated to the ‘Change and Check’ campaign enabling thousands of stickers to be printed.
Visit our awareness page if you would like to be sent
a change and check sticker.

We need your support for our urgent appeal, to open Future Dreams House -
the new London home to Breast Cancer Haven.
Future Dreams is thrilled to announce confirmation of our partnership with national charity Breast Cancer Haven on the development of Future Dreams House - Breast Cancer Haven’s new London centre. FDH will be located on Birkenhead Street, within a minute’s walk from King’s Cross station, a site which is accessible to patients from 15 hospitals across the Capital.
As the only complementary breast cancer support service in London, Breast Cancer Haven provide free one-to-one therapies that address the physical and emotional symptoms and side effects of each woman's medical treatment. Once the new centre opens, visitors will also be able to access practical support including image workshops, life-coaching, financial advice and nutritional advice on exercise and healthy eating. Perhaps the most vital function is to provide a non-medical environment in which people can form friendships and networks that will help them take on this disease from a place of solidarity and empowerment.
FDH will ensure founders Sylvie Henry and Danielle Leslie’s dreams of nobody having to face this illness on their own becomes a reality. The charity anticipates the house to open in Autumn this year.
Our founders Sylvie and Danielle were determined that no one face breast cancer alone, so fought through their own treatments to put on an ambitious and spectacular fundraising event. Since 2008 we have continued their legacy to raise over £6.3m for support, awareness and research.See our story
