Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. We have discovered new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer that together have saved millions of lives across the world.
We have been at the heart of the progress that has already seen survival rates double in the last thirty years. But one in three of us will still get cancer at some point. Our groundbreaking work, funded entirely by the public, will help ensure that millions more people will survive.
We work in partnership with others to achieve the greatest impact in the global fight against cancer. We provide life-changing information to anyone affected by cancer. We run awareness initiatives so that cancer can be detected early and help people reduce their risk of the disease. And our campaigning and lobbying keeps cancer at the top of the political agenda.
We receive no government funding for our research so our supporters are crucial if we are to continue to make real progress against this disease.
