Based in Scotland, they are a UK wide organisation full of amazing people – from dedicated volunteers to patient champions and the dynamic board of trustees.
Then there is the founder!
Make 2nds Count was founded by Lisa Fleming in 2017. Lisa, who was diagnosed with secondary breast cancer decided that she wanted to make a change.

Four years later there is now a whole community working with her to raise both awareness and funds to support further research into secondary breast cancer and to support the patients and families affected.
