Calling all Curestarters!

We will end cancer by starting new cures around the world


We're Curestarters - are you?

By 2030 cancer is predicted to become the leading cause of death worldwide. We urgently need to find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer - but we can't do it alone.  

With your help, we vow to keep funding more lifesaving research projects into any type of cancer, anywhere in the world. We won’t stop until cancer does.  



No parent should have to bury their child. Will you support our Spring Appeal today?

Anne's daughter Cathrin was just 34 when she was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer. Devastatingly, treatment couldn't stop the cancer from spreading to Cathrin's brain, and she passed away in May 2020, just four years later. Anne is now telling Cathrin's story to raise awareness of the need for more cancer research — because it’s the only thing that will end cancer and stop more families like hers from experiencing the pain and devastation that they've felt.

Sandy meets the scientist who saved her life

The research journey is a long one and it can take up to 20 years for an idea to lead to new treatments. But there can't be an end to cancer if we don't start at the beginning.

We introduced our supporter Sandy to Professor Steve Jackson, whose research led to the development of a treatment that saved her life.
