Every year in Cheshire and Merseyside 1,645 women are diagnosed with breast cancer.
Almost two thirds of women newly diagnosed with breast cancer are now likely to survive for at least 20 years.
More than a quarter of a million people are diagnosed with cancer each year in the UK.
Cancer Research UK regional spokeswoman Jane Bullock said: "Thousands of people who wouldn't have survived cancer ten years ago are today getting their lives back thanks to Cancer Research UK.
"Across the North West, people like Paula are benefiting from major advances that have been made in cancer research.
"Much hard work lies ahead if we are to go on saving lives, but together with local communities we will beat cancer."
