Working in Yorkshire to Beat Cancer.
Yorkshire Cancer Research is the UK’s largest regional medical research charity. Every penny we raise we spend in Yorkshire, helping local people beat cancer and supporting world-class research, diagnosis and treatment in our region.
The funding we provide scientists and clinicians from across the world to enables us to bring their expertise to our region. The charity has been funding research into cancer in all its forms for the last 85 years and every year we gain greater knowledge and understanding of the disease. This has led to improved patient benefits and moved us a step closer to achieving our goal, which is a world without cancer.
Yorkshire Cancer Research charity has committed a further £14.6million over the next five years to continue funding research teams across Yorkshire in their goal to find the causes and cures for cancer.
Unfortunately, 259 people die every week from cancer in Yorkshire. Our aim is to reduce this statistic by funding groundbreaking research within our region that not only benefits people within Yorkshire but also cancer sufferers globally.
