You can help diagnose cancers earlier and create more effective personalised treatments

I care about: Treating and preventing cancer

One in two people in the UK will get cancer in their lifetimes. Two things make a huge difference; finding it early and matching the right treatment to the individual - a lifesaver for one patient could be useless for another.

Birmingham-in-Cancer-WardsWith your support, we can focus on cancers whose symptoms are easily mistaken for other conditions, including blood, brain, and bowel cancer. You can help us:

  • Find the genetic indicators that could catch cancer earlier
  • Teach our immune systems to target cancer cells
  • Get more patients into clinical trials
  • Test drugs before use to find the exact right match for the individual
