Why did we choose to support BIG?

UBU is a woman-led brand for women. We wanted to support a cause that gives back to the women in our community. While there are so so many amazing charities, causes and organisations out there doing amazing work, we kept coming back to BIG. This is a worldwide issue. Everyone knows someone affected by breast cancer. It could happen to any of us. We want to do what we can to help fight this.

What do BIG do?

BIG is dedicated to finding cures for breast cancer through international clinical trials and research programmes. BIG unites over 55 groups over 50 countries and 6 continents, connecting thousands of hospitals and cancer experts who collaborate on research. 

Great progress has been made in the fight against cancer. But still, cancer cases continue to grow every day. Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide. When research trials are done on an international scale, the results benefit the medical community and breast cancer patients worldwide.
