Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer (LFBC) is a voluntary group of ladies who donate their time and services to raise funds and awareness of Breast Cancer in the West Midlands.

We first came across LFBC at the Lord Digby Jones event, ‘Doing it in a different way’, earlier this year. Digby is the Honorary Patron of the charity.

At the event, they talked a bit about what they had been doing, what they plan to do and just how important it is that we support this cause.

Every penny they raise in fact stays in the Midlands and, believing that it is essential to have a centre of excellence, they have supported the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Breast Cancer Centre for the last 13 years.

We were so impressed with the energy and enthusiasm behind the charity, with ambitions to bring the most advanced cancer treatments to Birmingham, we knew we must get involved and encourage your support too…

How common is Breast Cancer?

·      Over 48,000 women and 400 men in the UK are diagnosed with Breast Cancer each year.

·      1 in 8 women are diagnosed with Breast Cancer during their lifetime.

·      Every hour of every day 1 in 8 women are diagnosed with Breast Cancer.

Breast Cancer Facts

·      Since Breast Screening commenced in 1980 the death rate has fallen by a 1/3.

·      85% of Women diagnosed through the screening programme will survive Breast Cancer            for more than 5 years.

·      2.5 Million Women will be invited for Breast Screening every year. 165,000 cases will be          detected.

Breast Cancer clearly affects a lot of lives; unfortunately some of the Matrix Capital team have been deeply affected by it too, so it is a cause very close to our hearts.

There are lots of ways to donate and join them in this fight against Breast Cancer.

We are donating 100% of the revenue from Director & Chartered Financial Planner Robin Melley’s book, Six Steps to Financial Empowerment https://www.justgiving.com/MatrixCapital. We’re all exploring lots of further team and individual ideas too with the hope that we can raise lots of money and awareness for this fantastic charity.

We hope you can help too – you can find out more about how at www.lfbc.org.uk
