Stopping post from known organisations

To stop mail from known organisations, it works best to make direct contact them by post, email or phone. Let them know the person’s full name and postal address, advise them of the death and ask them to remove them from mailing lists.

Inform us of a recent bereavement

Please do let Breast Cancer Now know if you think your loved one might be on our database so that we can make sure we don't mail them in the future.

You can let us know by emailing or calling 020 7960 3508 with the person’s name and address.

Mum was an amazing woman. The morning she died, my sister and I said that we wanted to do something every year to celebrate her life and have a day to bring our family and friends together. We set up a fund to show that mum will never ever be out of our thoughts.
