One Thousand Women is a brand new fundraising initiative led by Samantha Wisnevitz. Samantha is 32 years old but unfortunately is suffering with breast cancer which has spread to her liver, lungs and bones. In August 2010 she was given a two year prognosis but has received encouraging test results that suggest that her new treatment regime is working and her condition is stable. You can Read on about her inspirational story here .

Driven by the desire to help other breast cancer sufferers, Sam has set up One Thousand Women. The campaign will see 1,000 women raise £250 each for the charity in any way they wish. Participating women will be encouraged to ask three friends to join them and also raise this amount, forming a '£1,000 hub'. The £250,000 raised will be used to support the groundbreaking development of new cures for breast cancer at Imperial College, Hammersmith Hospital, led by Professor Justin Stebbing. One Thousand Women has only just been launched but fundraisers are already planning events throughout England and as far afield as Portugal and even South Africa!
