Cancer Research UK
Dedicated to beating cancer through research
Cancer Research UK pioneers life-saving research to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. The generosity of their supporters has enabled the charity to lead the world in discovering and developing newer, kinder treatments and get closer to cures. As a result survival rates have doubled in just 40 years. But we can’t stop there. Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer and every step made towards beating cancer relies on every pound, every hour and every person.
From volunteers and supporters on the ground to scientists, doctors and nurses in the hospitals and labs, they’re working together to save more lives by preventing, controlling and curing all cancers. Donations via Pennies ensure that new scientific discoveries in the labs can quickly become new treatments for patients, helping women like Nicola survive cancers that a generation ago were still incurable.
