Cancer Research UK

We’re the world’s leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research. Our vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. Thanks to research, cancer survival has doubled over the past 40 years, with 1 in 2 now beating their disease. But there is still so much to do. 

Today, around 946 people will be diagnosed with cancer. Half of them sadly will not survive their disease. We’re accelerating progress to see 3 in 4 people survive cancer within the next 20 years. We are the only ones fighting over 200 cancers, including the ones that matter most to you and your friends.

Our mission is to prevent, control and cure cancer. We’re here to save more lives, add more years, make treatments kinder, inform the public, expel fear and cure.
