Cancer Research UK is the world’s largest cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research. Our vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured, from the most common types to those that affect just a few people.
Cancer poses a huge and growing challenge with the number of people around the world who receive a diagnosis each year expected to rise dramatically, from 15 million in 2015 to 24 million in 2035.
In the 1970’s less than a quarter of people in the UK with cancer Survived but over the last 40 years, survival has doubled- today half will survive. Our ambition is to accelerate progress and, by 2034, see three-quarters of people surviving the disease for 10 years or more.
Within the last 40 years Cancer Research UK’s research has played a role in developing 8 of the world’s top 10 cancer drugs, have helped double breast cancer survival and been a key player in the development of radiotherapy, which now benefits more than 130,000 patients every year in the UK.
We’re pioneering new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, as well as finding ways to optimise treatment. The intrastate we have created for scientists enables world class research, and we engage and empower patients, policy makers and the public to make sure advances in research have a positive impact.
None of our life-saving work would be possible without the strength of our fundraising and our outstanding people- our supporters, volunteers, staff and people affected by cancer.
