Our progress and achievements
No other charity anywhere in the world is doing more to beat cancer than we are. We're the only one fighting over 200 cancers, including the one that matters most to you, and here in the UK we're the single largest funder of cancer research. All this is only possible with our generous supporters and hard-working scientists.
Cancer Research UK has been working on pioneering life-saving research for over a century. These pages tell the story of our groundbreaking achievements and the real progress we're making in preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer.
See how far we've come in tackling different types of cancer.
