  • 19. Jordan10 Peter Greene, Founder of Sarah Green Crocus Fund: ‘Triple negative breast cancer is more difficult to treat because tumours do not respond to targeted treatments (such as Herceptin or Tamoxifen). These scientists will be trying to find out more about it, in particular which genetic changes in the tumour cause or drive its growth. Despite there being 6,000 new cases a year in this country, very little is known about it. They want to learn more about the biology of the disease, including if there is a 'cancer stem cell' that causes it. With this knowledge, scientists will be trying to find new ways to diagnose, treat and ultimately prevent this form of breast cancer.’ ‘The lab is amazing and most of the equipment is state of the art. The staff are highly respected and were happy to try and explain to us lay folk how it all works. The one thing that is very obvious is that they are a very dedicated and enthusiastic team. The lab is not far away from the out patients department and it is also a very short distance from where tumour tissue is removed and then taken for analysis - about 20 yards! The visit was inspirational and we should all feel proud of what we have contributed to.’ In layman’s terms...
