Isle of Man Breastcare
Providing direct support to the island's breast cancer patients and their families. THE ORIGINAL! with over 16 years experience.
Our funds go DIRECTLY to patients and their families to help them through difficult times. Not to be confused with another island breast cancer charity fundraising for a Breast Unit at Noble’s.
We are a Registered Charity set up by local women who have all experienced breast cancer themselves, providing emotional, practical and financial support to patients, their friends and families through trained counsellors. We have a positive working relationship with local healthcare providers and represent the concerns and interests of Breast Cancer patients.

As always, this year’s event will be a mix of music, dance, and other entertainment, with the highlight being a fashion show featuring breast cancer patients and survivors modelling clothes from M&S. Dot Tilbury MBE and Geoff Corkish MBE MLC will be comperes for the evening. CLICK for more details
A coup for the Fashion Show!
DAVID ARTUS, fresh from his amazing performance as The Phantom in 'Phantom of the Opera' at The Gaiety, is again joining us for 'Fashion for Life 15'. The Phantom was a sell out every night for 10 nights with standing ovations every night. How lucky are we?
Andrew Lloyd Webber’s production company granted the island’s Taylorian productions the very first license to perform ‘Phantom’ by an amateur theatre group.

Relay for Life!
The National Sports Centre saw the 6th annual ‘Relay for Life’ in aid of Cancer Research UK. Our Group members along with a good crowd of other ‘Survivors’ helped to lead off the 24 hour relay of 59 Fundraising Teams at 12pm on Saturday, finishing at 12pm on Sunday. Last year raised £53,000 by the Day and £85,000 in total. This year, by 12pm Sunday £77,000 had already been raised!
Moira's 80 and we get the present!!
Moira Marshall who was 80 last week, asked that family and friends make a donation to our charity in lieu of presents. She has just handed me £600!! Thank you Moira, and Oh to be so popular!!
Trek raises £500!
We recently had a cheque presentation at The Grill in The Park, Douglas. In November, Jackie Elliott (one of our top models in Fashion for Life!) and her friend Liz Geldart took part in a charity trek to Machu Picchu in Peru. They raised money mainly for IOM Anti Cancer, but also £500 for us. They had an amazing experience. Laughter, tears and a hard slog but they made it!
