Story

Thanks for taking the time to visit the Head and Neck Cancer Charity Abseil JustGiving page.

We're a small team of people, including former patients, who are abseiling £150ft down Liverpool Cathedral to raise vital funds for Head and Neck Cancer Research and Support.

We're each trying to raise at least £100, ideally making a total target of £1,000 - a lot of money, but for a great cause.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving – they’ll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they’ll send your money directly to the charity and make sure Gift Aid is reclaimed on every eligible donation by a UK taxpayer. So it’s the most efficient way to donate - we raise more, whilst saving time and cutting costs for the charity.

On average every year 8,000 people are diagnosed with a form of head and neck cancer, but because there is so little publicity, people remain unaware of the dangers. Patients typically present for diagnosis and treatment relatively late, with over half of all patients having advanced cancer at presentation.

We are currently raising funds for a new three year research project into head and neck cancer awareness - early detection really can save lives.

Donations are also used to help fund one of our "unsung heros" a senior statistician, working away behind the scenes analysing the data produced by researchers; and of course to fund the activities of the Head and Neck Cancer Patient and Carer Support Group.

Your donations really do make a difference to people's lives. Please dig deep and donate now. THANK YOU!!!
