In August 2021, our colleague and friend Simone Taylor sadly passed away from triple-negative breast cancer at the age of 32. Simone was BRCA1 positive, and it is estimated that 1 in 40 women of Ashkenazi Jewish heritage is BRCA+ making them 10 times as likely to carry a BRAC mutation as someone in the general population. This raised her lifetime risk of developing breast cancer from a 12% to 72%. Raising money to support cancer charities was a cause very close to Simone’s heart. Triple-negative breast cancer is a particularly aggressive and devastating form of the disease, which mostly occurs in women under 50. Around 70% of breast cancers diagnosed in people with an inherited BRCA mutation, particularly BRCA1, are triple-negative. There are fewer targeted treatments for the disease and approximately 46% of TNBC patients will go on to develop distant metastasis. More research is desperately needed to develop new drugs and treatments for TNBC specifically. The Simone Taylor fund will donate to a range of cancer charities selected by her family and colleagues. These charities support genetic diagnosis, scientific discovery and research, the development of new treatments or help those currently living with cancer. Our mission is to fundraise for charities working towards the prevention and treatment of cancer and those helping and supporting individuals living with cancer. Read less
