Cancer Research UK

Cancer Research UK is leading the world in finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. Every two minutes someone in the UK is told they have cancer. As the population grows and ages, the number of cases continues to rise. Cancer Research UK want to create more tomorrows for more people and determined to keep pushing forward in the fight against cancer.

Cancer research is entirely funded by the public and they need our support to help continue with groundbreaking work and help more people survive cancer. Make a donation today and become cancer’s worst nightmare.

How your money can help:

£10 could buy enough glass slides for a scientist to examine 300 tumour samples down a microscope

could buy around 250 special sterile dishes to grow the cells in and keep them healthy, helping answer fundamental research questions that could lead to the breakthrough discoveries of tomorrow

£50 could buy around 50 thermometers – indispensable for many experiments that need to be performed at very precise temperatures.

could cover the cost for one woman to take part in a clinical trial aiming to improve survival for post-menopausal women with early-stage breast cancer.

could fund a trained counsellor to facilitate the nurses’ monthly clinical supervision meeting. Our experienced cancer information nurses provide a confidential service for anyone with concerns about cancer. This will develop their skills in dealing with calls and help them cope with the emotional impact of the experiences they hear.
