About Cancer Research UK
Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research, funding over 4,000 scientists, doctors and nurses across the UK.
We are carrying out world-class research into all aspects of cancer, from understanding the causes and biology of the disease through to developing better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat it.
Research is bringing forward the day when all cancers are cured.
We are hoping to raise £3m from Shine in 2013. This money will make a huge impact and help save many more lives. The money you raise at Shine will turn breakthroughs in the lab into new treatments that will bring more tomorrows for families all over the UK.
