What we do

Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research. Our groundbreaking work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer has seen survival rates double in the last 40 years. Our scientists and doctors have contributed to most of the world’s top cancer drugs and we have pioneered the use of radiotherapy to treat cancer.

We don’t just do research. Every year we help millions of people get the information they need to understand the disease. And, together with our supporters, we campaign on key cancer issues including access to cancer drugs, screening and reducing the use of tobacco.

More than one in three of us will get cancer at some point in our lives. Our research to beat cancer is entirely funded by the public and thanks to that generosity our scientists, doctors and nurses are leading the world in discovering new ways to fight cancer. Research saves lives and our work is critical to ensuring more people beat this devastating disease.

Gifts in Wills

Legacies are our largest single source of income and fund over a third of our life-saving work. For example, they help to fund the world class research that takes place in Belfast at our research centre and in six other locations across Northern Ireland. Your gift can help us bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. For more information about our work and to see the impact that your legacy could have please visit our website.
