Our story

Working together to help stop cancer sooner

We are the only independent cancer research charity fighting the toughest cancers in North West England and North Wales.

Since funding our very first research project in 1980, we have always been at the forefront of life-saving cancer research. More than thirty six years’ later and we are still funding some of the best cancer research at the University of Liverpool, Bangor University and Lancaster University.  

As a charity we have committed to funding more than £13million worth of cancer research projects over the next five years; and we support hundreds of clinicians, doctors and students in the fields of basic, translational and clinical research.

Our promise is simple. We only support the best local medical research, to stop cancer sooner.

We can only do this thanks to our amazing supporters, who to date, have helped us raise millions of pounds for cancer research. Thanks to their help, patients and their loved-ones are benefitting from our world-class medical research today.

Thanks to advances in research half of all people diagnosed with cancer survive. We still have a long way to go, which is why the fight against cancer has never been so important. With your help we will stop cancer sooner.
