Charities raising money for Cancer
Charity Mission Statement:
Every year more than 41,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with bowel cancer and over 250,000 individuals live with Inflammatory Bowel Disease. Bowel & Cancer Research looks forward to a day when no one will die of bowel cancer or have to live with chronic bowel disease. To bring this day closer, we invest in the best science across the UK.
From the National Bowel Research Centre and research labs around the country, we aim to deliver our vision by funding scientific research to save lives and improve the quality of life for individuals with bowel cancer and other bowel problems, such as Colitis, Crohn’s and Irritable Bowel Syndrome. We also encourage our next generation of research experts by supporting a dedicated PhD studentship programme. We believe that we make research better when we involve the public in all its aspects, so we have a unique programme to make this happen called People and Research Together (PaRT). We want to support people who live with bowel conditions and educate the public about what it's like to live with a chronic bowel condition, so we run engaging campaigns aimed at challenging enduring myths and taboos.

Prostate Cancer UK has a simple ambition – to stop men dying from prostate cancer. As the number of men diagnosed with prostate cancer continues to rise (making it the most common of all cancers by 2030), now is the time to take control. Through shifting the science over the next 10 years to focus on radical improvements in diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and support, we will stop prostate cancer being a killer. Ignoring prostate cancer won’t beat it, so join the fight.

Website: http://www.katyholmestrust.co.ukThe Katy Holmes Trust was set up in memory of our beautiful 10 year old daughter Katy who died from a rare brain tumour in January 2012 after a brave 3 month battle. We have since discovered that brain tumours are the BIGGEST cancer killer of children in the UK and yet the most poorly funded by Government who only give 0.7% towards research. Our aim is to raise the money to fund paediatric brain tumour research ourselves and find the cure

The John King Brain Tumour Foundation is a registered charity supporting the Atkinson Morley Wing of St George’s Hospital, Tooting, UK, treating Glioblastoma brain tumour patients. With your support we are fundraising for the McKissok Ward garden, surgical equipment and research not currently funded by the NHS.
The charity’s first major project is to raise money for a state-of-the-art microscope, not available through NHS funding. This will allow more of a brain tumour to be removed during surgery prolonging a patient’s life.
Ultimately, we want to support research into this fatal cancer which receives only 0.5% of all government cancer research funding and has an average life expectancy of just 15 months. Sadly, many more young people are being diagnosed with malignant brain tumours. Brain tumours kill more under 40’s than any other cancer.
