Help us beat cancer sooner

We receive no government funding for our research. Our life-saving work relies on the money you give us.

“Cancer doesn't have to be the end"

Alim has beaten cancer three times through combining chemotherapy and surgery. Today more than 9 out of 10 men are cured of testicular cancer, one of research’s greatest successes.

Beating cancer with a 'chemical cage'

It is important to get oxygen into the cancer cells to make treatments effective.  Dr Ester Hammond and Dr Stuart Conway developed a 'chemical cage' which carries an oxygenating molecule in an inactive state until it reaches the cancer cells and gets to work.
