Donate to help us beat cancer
Help continue life-saving research
We’ve already had to cut around £44 million of our funding towards cancer research. And without your help, we could be forced to cut millions more every year. This isn’t a decision we take lightly, but we need to protect our future by taking action now. As things stand, we’re receiving no additional government support, so we’re facing one of the biggest challenges in our history.
But, although COVID-19 has slowed us down, we will never stop. We are absolutely determined to continue our research to create better treatments for tomorrow, but we urgently need your help today.
So please, give generously today, and together we will still beat cancer.
A gift of £20 could pay for a simple blood test that allows researchers like Professor Charlie Swanton and his team to detect traces of a patient’s tumour DNA.
If just 3 people gave £50 each, this could go towards supporting a research nurse on the TRACERx study for 1 day. Research nurses are clinical experts who support patients as they take part in our groundbreaking research.
A gift of £100 could fund a PhD student working on the TRACERx project for 1 day, as they study how tumours evolve and why treatments stop working.
