Breast Cancer Now – The Last One

Breast Cancer Now, created through the merger of Breakthrough Breast Cancer and Breast Cancer Campaign, was launched in June with an online film, “The Last One”, and a website. “The Last One” features real women with breast cancer speaking frankly about the realities of the disease which may one day take their lives. It also highlights Breast Cancer Now’s ambition that, if we all act now, breast cancer will have taken its last life by 2050. All of the women featured in the ad are real breast cancer sufferers, and each line of dialogue is their own words. The Breast Cancer Now Youtube channel features further videos in which the women and their families tell the real stories that inspired the ad.
