ADVANCED RESEARCH INTO ADVANCED DISEASE We fund research into cancer and other crippling diseases. Our specialism is the spread of cancer which is the cause of most deaths. We have recently made a significant discovery: a family of genes responsible for cancer spread.
The next step is to develop drugs to control these genes so that we can save lives. For this we are urgently need £500,000! Our own Cancer and Polio Research Fund Laboratories are now recognized as world leaders in this area. We are one of the few charities, if not the only one, funding research into the debilitating long-term after-effects of Polio.
There are more than 40,000 people in this country affected. Our aim is to understand the condition better so that we can improve the quality of sufferers’ lives. Every year we need to raise a minimum £250,000 to continue this vital work.
