We’re a collective force, leading pioneering, life-saving research in the relentless fight against all cancers. Each day, creating more tomorrows.
Thanks to our work 2 in 4 people now survive their cancer.
That’s good progress, but it isn’t enough. Within the next 20 years we have made it our mission to make sure 3 in 4 survive. We can’t do it without people like you - people who raise funds so we can keep doing our research in the labs. We fund research into more than 200 types of cancer, including the one that’s most important to you.
Beating cancer is expensive- last year we spent £341 million on research. This year we want to carry out even more research which means spending even more. Every step we make towards accomplishing this ambition relies on every hour and every person- by choosing Cancer Research UK to donate to you will bring forward the day when cancer is beaten.
One switch buys a lab coat, box of gloves and goggles – not only geek chic, but these vital items help our scientists to carry out life-saving research.
£75 funds chemical building blocks that make up a strand of DNA, to make copies of important genes that give us clues about why things go wrong in cancer.
£100 covers the cost of giving one patient the Cytosponge test and analysing their results in the lab to diagnose early stages of oesophageal cancer.
Right now our scientists are making amazing discoveries but they would not be able to do their work without the help of our amazing supporters.- Cancer Research UK
