About Cancer Research UK
Cancer Research UK are the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research.
They have saved millions of lives with their ground breaking work into preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer. People’s chances of surviving cancer have doubled in the last 40 years, and they’ve been at the heart of that progress.
But one in three of us will still get cancer at some point. Their vital work, funded entirely by the public, will help ensure that millions more people survive.
Their vision of beating cancer is an enormous challenge. These four purpose statements set out how we address that challenge.
• They carry out world-class research to improve our understanding of cancer and find out how to prevent, diagnose and treat different kinds of cancer.
• They ensure that our findings are used to improve the lives of all cancer patients.
• They help people to understand cancer, the progress we are making and the choices each person can make.
• They work in partnership with others to achieve the greatest impact in the global fight against cancer.
