We will be walking the Shine Night London Half-Marathon* in memory of loved ones who have lost their lives to cancer, in support of friends and family currently fighting cancer, and in the hope that soon these battles will be more easily overcome by everyone.
*gammy knees and replacement hips permitting!
Cancer Research UK
Supporters drive everything we do at Cancer Research UK. With no government funding for our research, it’s only thanks to your generosity that we’ve helped double cancer survival rates in just 40 years.
Strategy to Beat Cancer Sooner
We want survival in the UK to be among the best in the world. We’re focusing our efforts in four key areas – working to help prevent cancer, diagnose it earlier, develop new treatments and optimise current treatments by personalising them and making them even more effective.
We'll continue to support research into all types of cancer and across all age groups. And we’re keeping our focus on understanding the biology of cancer so we can use this vital knowledge to save more lives.
We're increasing our research in key areas such as early diagnosis, and hard-to-treat cancers including lung, pancreatic, oesophageal cancers and brain tumours.
We’re developing new tests, surgery and radiotherapy techniques, and cancer drugs. We want to personalise prevention, screening and treatment and bring benefits to patients sooner.
To help accelerate progress, we’ll be investing an additional £50 million a year into new funding schemes for our researchers. These will encourage collaboration and innovation, and support research tackling some of the biggest scientific challenges in cancer research.
Smoking is the biggest preventable cause of cancer and we’ll work towards the day when no one in the UK smokes – in particular by protecting children and helping people to quit.
We’ll campaign for the best cancer services in all parts of the UK, and give more people the chance to join the fight against cancer.
But we can’t achieve our mission alone. We rely on our dedicated scientists, doctors and nurses, and the generosity of our supporters across the UK. With your help, we can beat cancer sooner.
