Why your donation matters
Your donation to Cancer Research UK will really make a difference, it will help give more families the chance to be together longer.
Thanks to advances in cancer research, thousands of people who wouldn't have survived cancer 10 years ago are still here today.
Spreading your donation across the year in small monthly donations enables us to plan our research better. This means our regular supporters are vital to making advances in cancer research.
Or you could choose to make a single donation which will enable our scientists to continue their life-saving research.
Together we can find new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.
Case study: donations in action
Claire Daniels was a 19-year old Warwick University student when she was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
Claire, now 24, had lost a lot of weight and became extremely tired. After her diagnosis, she decided to have her treatment close to her parents' home at Manchester's Christie Hospital.
Initially Claire had ABVD chemotherapy but was one of the small percentage of patients who didn't respond successfully. The cancer returned aggressively and she had further intense chemotherapy, radiotherapy and a stem cell transplant, which meant she had to remain in an isolation ward for four weeks.
"In between treatments I organised a student ball and it really helped me to focus and detract from the illness," says Claire. "That's when I realised it was what I’d like to do for a living."
Claire now works as a Special Events Executive for Cancer Research UK.
