Being bold saves lives

You can help us start new cancer cures

What we do

Your kindness will start bold new research and stop the suffering caused by cancer.

1 in 2 people in the UK will be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. For us, that’s 1 in 2 too many.

We know that bold research will cure cancer. That’s why we fund the brightest minds around the world in their quests to conquer cancer.



Will you help us start new cures?

Scientists across the world are ready to conquer cancer. With your support, we can fund their research and save lives.

How your support saves lives

Cancer survival rates in the UK have doubled since our charity was founded in 1979. Research has led to the discovery and development of new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. But with over 200 types of cancer, there is still so much more to do. Discover how your support has helped people living with cancer and how our ongoing research is providing hope for the future.
