About Cancer Research UK

"Our vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured"

Cancer Research UK is the world's largest independent cancer research charity with one overriding goal - to find a cure for cancer sooner. To do this, Cancer Research UK provides essential work; funding scientists, researchers, doctors, nurses, clinical trials, and supporting the public with life-saving information.

What work do Cancer Research UK do?

To be able to beat cancer once and for all, Cancer Research UK focuses their efforts into 4 key areas:

  • Prevention

    As more than 40% of cancers could be prevented by lifestyle changes, Cancer Research UK works to educate members of the public to change their approach and attitude and reduce their risk of getting certain types of cancers. Cancer Research UK needs continued research, legislation changes, and awareness campaigns to prevent more people getting cancer when the increased chance could be avoided.

  • Early Diagnosis

    More than 90% of people can be successfully treated for bowel cancer when it is spotted at the earliest stage, but fewer than 10% of people are diagnosed at this point. The earlier cancer is diagnosed, the chance for more successful treatment is much higher. Cancer Research believe that no-one should be diagnosed too late to have treatment which might save their life, which is why they’re investing £20 million a year into early diagnosis research.

  • Developing New Treatments

    After years of research, treatments, and work, UK scientists and doctors have a better understanding of cancer and want to use this advancement in knowledge to develop new, more effective treatments, particularly for the rare and hard-to-treat cancers. Focus isn’t just on discovering new drugs, but combining radiotherapy and surgery with drugs which could be hugely beneficial to patients. Cancer Research UK supports more than 250 clinical trials across the UK, using their network of knowledge and understanding from scientists in the UK and worldwide to deliver treatment to patients in need as quickly as possible.

  • Optimising & Personalising Current Treatments

    Every case of cancer is unique - what has worked for one patient isn’t guaranteed to work for another, which is why Cancer Research UK are using the information about genetic changes in different types of cancer from their research to personalise treatment for patients to ensure it’s the best option, it’s effective, and that it’s precise. This better understanding of the biology of the disease means Cancer Research UK can retest drugs from the past by giving them to the right people at the right time and in the combinations that work the best.

How your donation helps Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research fun run shot

When you donate to Cancer Research UK, you’re helping their scientists get closer to finding a cure. Cancer Research UK will use your donation to fund where the need is highest - it could fund something as big as a new research centre, or as small as glass slides to analyse cancer cells - both are as vital as each other.

Cancer touches and affects all of us in one way or another, and current forecasts show that 1 in 2 of us will develop some form of cancer during our lifetime, and half of those will survive. The statistics are terrifying, which is why they need our help, and now more than ever.
