About Yorkshire Cancer Research 

Funding research that saves lives in Yorkshire.

Yorkshire Cancer Research is a charity dedicated to funding research so that you and those you love live longer, healthier lives. Our aim is for at least 2000 more people to survive cancer in Yorkshire every year. To do this, each year we fund £10 million of world-leading research to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer.

Yorkshire is big and beautiful and while we have much to celebrate, sadly more people in our region are likely to have their lives cut short by cancer than almost anywhere else in England. As Yorkshire’s own independent cancer charity, we are dedicated to changing this by funding pioneering research to save lives right here in Yorkshire, in your town, your city and your community.
