Bone Cancer Research Trust

We fund pioneering research to save lives & improve outcomes.

Story

My incredible husband Alex Lewis died on the 17th February 2011 just 5 days after he made me the happiest woman in the world by becoming my husband. Alex always wanted to raise awareness for the Bone Cancer Research Trust and so I have decided to run a half marathon on the 9th October this year (Which is in BCRT awareness week) to raise money for this amazing charity. 

Around 450 people are diagnosed with bone cancer each year in the UK and Republic of Ireland, mainly affecting children and young people between the ages of 10 and 24. The most common types of bone cancer are osteosarcoma and Ewing's sarcoma. 

BCRT sets out to improve the outcome for people with primary bone cancer through research, awareness, information and support. 

As bone cancer is rare, research into primary bone cancer currently gets very little funding from other sources.  Since being formally registered as a charity in 2006, BCRT has funded 24 research projects to the value of £800,000.   

 

So please be generous with your donations.

 

Thank you very much

Ali
