About Worldwide Cancer Research
There are a million reasons to support Worldwide Cancer Research. We fund lifesaving cancer research projects in the UK and across the world. We fund exceptional researchers around the globe who are working 24 hours a day, seven days a week. We do all of this to look after people, your people – whether it’s your mum, your gran, your brother, your husband, your neighbour or that friend you haven’t seen in years…

In the 40 years since Worldwide Cancer Research was founded in St Andrews, Scotland, research has helped double cancer survival rates. It has led to better ways to prevent, diagnose and stop cancer sooner, as well as kinder, more effective treatments. However, the search for answers can’t stop here.

Because cancer affects almost everyone at some stage in their lives – whether you are one of the estimated 1 in 2 people in the UK diagnosed with cancer during their lifetime, or one of those forced to watch a much-loved friend or family member undergoing treatment. Because even in 2018, one person dies of cancer every four seconds worldwide. Because every day, millions of lives are still turned upside down by cancer.

We know the answers to cancer will not be found by one scientist, in one lab, in one country. Instead, we take a global approach to solving a local problem - because cancer touches people in your city, your street, your family, but the answers could be found anywhere in the world. Cancer knows no boundaries and, in outsmarting it, neither should we.

If we don’t invest in the ideas of today, we risk losing the cures of tomorrow.  Help us search the world for lifesaving answers to cancer.
