Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. We have saved millions of lives by discovering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, and survival rates have doubled over the past 40 years.

We fund research into more than 200 types of cancer, from the most common – such as breast, bowel, lung and prostate cancers – to rare types of tumour and children’s cancers; we support groundbreaking science that benefits everyone. We currently invest nearly £400 million annually into our scientific research programme.

Research is cancer’s ultimate enemy, but our life-saving work relies entirely on the money contributed by our supporters, whether through direct giving, legacies, one-off events or volunteer fundraising. We receive no Government funding for our research so without the dedication and generosity of our supporters, we wouldn’t be able to carry out any of our life saving research.
