Story

One More City is an annual cycling campaign that moves from city to city, starting from where the previous years ride has finished. In 2017 we rode from London to Paris in 24 hours. In 2018, we rode the 630k from Paris to Amsterdam over 3 days, and in 2019 we rode 720k from Amsterdam to Strasbourg in 4 days.

Much of breast cancer awareness, campaigning and research are focused around prevention and detection in the case of primary cancer, when the disease is confined to the breast and lymph nodes. Early diagnosis provides the best chance for survival, as the disease is curable in most people at this stage. However, an estimated 20-30% of primary cancers spread to other organs, which is termed secondary cancer, and at this point, the cancer is no longer curable. Those diagnosed with secondary cancer will spend the rest of their foreshortened lives on some form of treatment.

The ethos of One More City is that the journey is never over; we are always progressing towards the next city, there are always more kilometres to do, more climbs to conquer and more challenges to face. This is akin to the reality of anyone living with cancer, especially secondary cancer, for whom the challenge is never over; there are always more treatments to endure, more scans to face, more side effects to manage.

Having successfully funded a PhD project in secondary breast cancer research at Imperial College London, One More City is pleased to announce its next Ph.D project this time based at The Institute of Cancer Research (ICR), and jointly supervised by the Breast Cancer Drug Resistance Lab at Imperial College London. This studentship will be for 4 years, and will require £120,000 of funding.

The aim of the project will be to create and develop new treatment options for secondary breast cancer patients, by bringing together the best resources and innovative research methods of two of the UKs leading cancer research centres.
