Why we need your support

Cancer Research UK is the largest charitable funder of cancer research in the world, and will stay at the forefront of the global fight against cancer. We are optimistic about the future. The world-class research that we fund will keep making transformative steps in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Our determination to beat cancer hasn’t faltered and we are more focussed than ever on our ambition of seeing 3 in 4 people survive their cancer by 2034.

The Manchester Campaign

Cancer Research UK will launch the ‘Re-Write Cancer’ campaign – a £20m joint fundraising appeal from Cancer Research UK, The Christie Charitable Fund and The University of Manchester. The campaign aims to help meet the cost of a new £150m cancer research facility. The new building will bring together the largest concentration of scientists, doctors and nurses in Europe to collaborate and accelerate progress for cancer patients.

Find out more about the campaign here.
