Essex Cancer Research

Bringing research and community together.

Why fundraise for us?

1 in 2 people in the UK born after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime, according to Cancer Research UK. Research is crucial to making progress in preventing, diagnosing and treating cancer.

Local senior clinicians perceive that more needs to be done to widen local research opportunities. By fundraising for us, you help open doors for local research, improve access to the latest cancer care information, clinical trials and treatments, and enable us to offer support to people and their families facing the challenge of cancer in Essex.

We are local people and medical professionals living and working in Essex, for the people of Essex. You can help us make a difference.

How will we use funds raised?

  • Improve availability and accessibility of cancer information for patients and families living in Essex
  • Support local clinicians to initiate and undertake cancer research in Essex
  • Widen access to cancer research opportunities in Essex
  • Promote collaboration between academia, industry and the NHS to create a cancer research hub in Essex.
