Supporter stories 

At the heart of The Institute of Cancer Research are its people: the scientists and clinicians in our labs who are driving forward our research, the patients whose lives have improved because of our discoveries and, last but not least, our supporters who help make our work possible.

Their reasons for supporting us are as varied as the events they choose to do and we appreciate every ounce of energy our supporters put in. We are grateful for every penny they raise to help us make the discoveries that defeat cancer.
