We are a UK-wide patient and family focused charity dedicated to giving hope to women and men living with secondary breast cancer.


Research into secondary breast cancer is underfunded. Make 2nds Count’s mission is to fund secondary breast cancer research which contributes to advancing an increased quality of life for patients.

Our Support programme has a focus on quality of life and helping patients affected by this incurable disease by informing, sharing and offering practical advice & support.

Education is an integral part in everything that we do and we aim to raise awareness of secondary breast cancer through effective marketing and education programmes across the UK. We also empower patients through increasing their knowledge and understanding of research, treatments and options.

Make 2nds Count is supported by an enthusiastic and motivated group of individuals who help us make our vision a reality.  From permanent team members who are based at our head office in Edinburgh, to dedicated volunteers, patient champions and the dynamic board of trustees, our team is constantly evolving. 

Together we can Make 2nds Count.
