(b) provide patient support services and other support resources for chordoma sufferers and those connected with or related to chordoma sufferers (c) promote awareness into chordoma within the patient, healthcare, and clinician communities. (e) support individuals and organisations whose aim is to raise funds for Chordoma UK and (f) provide financial assistance for other charities or bodies as are in any way concerned with research into chordoma and other related cancers or with the furtherance of awareness of chordoma.
