Tragically, one in three of us will develop cancer in our lifetime. And even if we are not directly affected, almost all of us will be moved by the pain and suffering cancer causes to a relative or friend.
Our scientists and clinicians are working daily in our labs – in Chelsea and Sutton, London – to make a real impact on the lives of people with cancer. We have an unrivalled track record in cancer research and have world-leading researchers studying everything from the basic causes of the disease to developing the latest treatments for patients. You can read more about our latest discoveries on our news pages.
Our donors and supporters play a vital role in helping us to make the discoveries that defeat cancer. By running a marathon, donating monthly by Direct Debit, funding a PhD student or supporting us in another way, all our supporters are striving to help us make a difference.
Whether you’ve been affected by cancer, or whether you simply want to further world-leading research, please get involved and support us today.
