Lay summaries are a really effective way to explain how supporter donations improve the lives of people affected by your cause (in this case, breast cancer). They do all this in language that can be easily understood by supporters and the wider public, rather than just by the scientific community. As well as featuring on the website, these lay summaries are also used internally to form the basis of other communications such as fundraising appeals.
