1 in 2 of us will be touched by cancer in our lifetime.
So we work relentlessly to ruffle feathers, get sh*t done and make life easier to ensure everyone in our community gets the support they need. Are you with us?

Some nice things people have said about working with us (and we didn’t even have to pay ’em).
"The GVC team really advocated what we believe in, and asked the questions that many feel uncomfortable talking about. We heart GIRLvsCANCER; community-driven, fierce and friendly -- they get sh*t done. It's always a pleasure (pun 100% intended)."
"Through their ongoing incredible work, they are helping to spread our life-changing message of checking your boobs, pecs or chest regularly and raising vital funds for us to continue our work. Thank you for being our Brand Breastie; we really couldn't do it without you."
Jenna Chick, Partnerships Manager, CoppaFeel!
"We love our pals at GIRLvsCANCER! They show us how to live our best life with cancer of any kind. It's the gang that you never thought you'd be in but by having each other's backs, it gives you the warm feels and empowers you to live your best life. United now we will work together to make every 2nd count!"
Lisa Flemming, Founder, Make 2nds Count
"We love working with GIRL vs CANCER – it is such an incredible and empowering endeavour which we are proud to partner with. The energy and commitment Lauren and the team has to raise awareness for cancer is infectious. An amazing, supportive community. Lauren should be insanely proud of the impact GIRLvsCANCER has made and continues to make every day."
Sea Containers London
"In Bowel Cancer Awareness Month in April GvsC launched the fantastic Give a Shit campaign. This raised vital awareness, provoked conversations and raised funds through the sale of t-shirts and socks. Working together and collaboratively we can reach more people affected by bowel cancer."

"We first partnered with GIRLvsCANCER in 2017 and have worked with Lauren, in some capacity, ever since! She has created something unique and powerful in both her brand and platform to amplify great causes and raise funding across different causes of cancer education and support services."
Sarah Brown, Founder, Pai Skincare
Stewart O’Callaghan, Founder & Director, Live Through This
"The-C-List and GIRLvsCANCER have supported each other right from the start. At the heart of each initiative are two women who found a friendship thanks to breast cancer (it's one of the only positives of getting the disease!). Cancer isn't going anywhere fast so with all these grass roots projects it makes sense to have each other's backs - we're stronger in numbers. Plus Lauren is ace. Obvs."
Helen Addis & Lisa Potter-Dixon, Co-Founders, The C-List
"Breast Cancer Now and GIRLvsCANCER have supported each other for many years now. We are grateful to Lauren and value our relationship with GIRLvsCANCER and look forward to working together for many more years to come."
Baroness Delyth Morgan, Chief Executive, Breast Cancer Now
"It was our honour to be a small part of the #BeMoreJack awareness campaign in memory of our patient Jack Morgan, organised by GIRLvsCANCER and Jack’s family. A beautiful tribute to an inspiring young man. As a beneficiary of proceeds from the stylish merchandise, GIRLvsCANCER is helping North London Hospice support others with vital end-of-life care."

"We couldn’t be prouder to be partnered with the incredible GIRLvsCANCER! Since day one they have never shied away from addressing important topics. Trekstock’s partnership with GIRLvsCANCER is so important to us and crucial in raising invaluable awareness. Huge thanks to Lauren for her incredible support over the years and for raising vital funds to change the game for young adults with cancer."
Emma Cullingford, Head of Fundraising, Trekstock
"When Claire Paxman met and supported Lauren via social media whilst she was going through her treatment and subsequently when Claire appeared as a guest on the You, Me and the Big C podcast, there was a natural rapport and friendship born. Paxman are proud to support Lauren and GIRLvsCANCER in the fabulous work they do for the cancer community."
