At Lobular Breast Cancer UK we work to ensure that anyone diagnosed with lobular breast cancer lives, and lives well.
As people diagnosed with lobular breast cancer, we all have a different story to tell. Hear some shared personal experiences of living with a lobular breast cancer diagnosis.
But we don’t work in isolation at LBCUK. Only by working together can we make real changes and we are joined by our medical and scientific advisors, family and friends who support us and all of our volunteers.
Following a diagnosis of Lobular Carcinoma in Situ (LCIS), a risk marker for breast cancer, in 2014 and invasive Lobular Breast Cancer in 2017, Claire Turner, our Founder and Chair, couldn’t find any information about Lobular Breast Cancer in the UK and there seemed to be little understanding of the disease.

Scientific & Medical Advisory Group
One of the key challenges that we face is improving understanding, diagnosis, treatment and long-term survival for Lobular Breast Cancer. To make these changes, we require a significant amount of scientific, medical and research input and knowledge.
Our Scientific and Medical Advisors provide advice, guidance, information and help in this area. Our long term ambition is to work with them as partners in developing Lobular specific research programmes that meet the concerns and issues facing patients.
Remembering Dr Andy Sims
We want to remember Dr Andy Sims, one of our first Scientific Advisors, a highly-respected breast cancer researcher and lovely man, who sadly died of cancer in May 2021.
Our supporters have helped us to develop as a charity during our early days by providing resources, knowledge and skills. We have also received support from a number of individuals who have donated towards the charity. We want to say a huge thank you to each of them.
