Cancer Research UK’s scientists and doctors have contributed to most of the world’s top cancer drugs and have pioneered the use of radiotherapy to treat cancer.

In addition to research, Cancer Research UK help millions of people access the information they need to understand cancer. They campaign on key cancer issues and run awareness initiatives to increase early detection and help people to reduce their risk of cancer. The charity receives no government funding for its life-saving research, meaning every step it takes towards beating cancer relies on every pound donated. Together with its partners and supporters, Cancer Research UK’s vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
