Breakthrough Breast Cancer are doing a long-term study into the causes of breast cancer and are needing to enrol over 100,000 women in the UK. The study involves filling in detailed lifestyle questionnaires over the years and giving a blood sample. It sounds like a very worthwhile study - to find out more and to join go to Breakthrough Generations

I asked for mine last night and meant to mention it on here! Thanks geekgrrl.

I have a horrible feeling I might've applied for two so will try and get one of my neighbours to do one if both arrive!
