About Us

Welcome to Cancer Recovery Foundation 

Who We Are

Cancer Recovery Foundation helps everyone to prevent and recover from cancer through Breast Cancer Partnership, Children’s Cancer Recovery Project and our adult services. We understand people need immediate support and give cancer patients & their families’ financial security, hope, and valued advice when they need it most.

How We Help

Our approach is positive, practical and empowering.

  • We’re there- we respond within 1 week to every cancer patient who comes to us in need of financial support.
  • We’re unique- we are the only charity to send gifts to children in hospitals and hospices across the country three times a year.
  • We’re positive- 86% of people who receive our survivor packs improve their lifestyle and attitude as a direct result.
  • We’re pioneering- we believe that prevention comes before detection comes before treatment. That’s why we tell women they can halve their chances of developing breast cancer and how to do it.
  • We’re sharing- we know that not every country has access to a health system like we do, so we advise hospitals in developing countries on cancer treatment and provide drugs that they would otherwise be unable to afford. In 2011 our chosen hospitals were in Ghana.

Please visit our website now if we can help you, or if you think you can help us.

We’re here thanks to the generosity of our supporters and would love for you to be one of them
