World Cancer Research Fund

Dedicated to cancer prevention and survival

We fund world-wide scientific research into the links between diet, weight, physical activity, cancer prevention and survival. Translating the findings into practical, easy-to-use information to help everyone reduce their risk of cancer and survive this deadly disease.

In the UK, one in two people will be diagnosed with cancerYet around 40of cancer cases could be preventedThatís around 144,000 cancer cases every year that could be prevented through simple healthy lifestyle choices. 

By spreading this good news, along with our practical, easy-to-use information and Cancer Prevention Recommendations, we hope many thousands of lives will be saved. 

But our life-saving work canít stop there, cancer rates continue to rise and as we receive no government funding, this innovative scientific research work is only possible through the generosity of people like you, especially from gifts in wills. 

Having a current will is the best way to provide for your family and friends and we understand they must come first. But we urge you to join others to prevent cancer and save lives by including a gift to World Cancer Research when you write or next update your will. 

Your gift would enable us to continue to learn more about cancer prevention and survival and help more people to live healthier cancer-free lives.  

What better legacy to leave those you love and generations to come than a lasting gift of hope for a future free from cancer.
