What does cancer research do with the money they raise? We spend money on the very best projects that come our way, so we don’t have set amounts to spend on each cancer type. But we do keep an eye out for projects that will help speed up progress for cancers with very low survival, such as lung, pancreatic, oesophageal and brain tumours.
