What is the mission of Cancer Research UK? Our vision for a better future
People who do develop cancer are diagnosed at the earliest possible stage so they can be successfully treated. Treatments are more effective, kinder and more targeted, so people can lead better, more fulfilling lives.
How Has Cancer Research UK been successful? Showing how many cancers could be prevented
We help people make informed decisions about their health, after showing how many cases of cancer in the UK are preventable. The research finds that more than 135,000 cases each year – around 4 in 10 – could be prevented in the UK through lifestyle changes.
How does Cancer Research UK promote? Influencing key decision makers across the UK and EU is a vital way Cancer Research UK is fighting cancer. With the support of you and our Ambassadors, we campaign to improve prevention, early diagnosis and access to treatments to help bring forward the day all cancers are cured.
What is cancer research’s purpose? Cancer research transforms and saves lives. The goal of studying cancer is to develop safe and effective methods to prevent, detect, diagnose, treat, and, ultimately, cure the collections of diseases we call cancer.
