Your money makes a massive difference to the work of Cancer Research, and we think it is important that you know how it helps us to beat cancer sooner. So here is a breakdown of how it helps!
£10 could buy 300 glass slides for studying cells and tumour samples in detail under the microscope.
£30 could buy around 250 plastic Petri dishes. They're an essential resource for thousands of scientists who are working hard to understand cancer.
£54 could buy 22 thermometers (range -10°C to 110°C) – indispensable for many experiments that need to be performed at very precise temperatures.
£94 could cover the cost for one woman to take part in a clinical trial aiming to improve survival for post-menopausal women with early-stage breast cancer.
£123 could fund one cancer information nurse for a day. Our experienced cancer information nurses provide a confidential service for anyone with concerns about cancer.
£260 could buy a sophisticated microarray; a powerful piece of technology, helping scientists to scrutinise thousands of genes in a single experiment, and identify which are switched on in cancer.
£677 could cover the cost of one person taking part in a clinical trial testing chemotherapy before and after surgery, and the antibody drug Vectibix, to improve survival for bowel cancer patients.
£1,000 could cover around 22 days running expenses for an important lab project into a type of children's cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma. This could lead to improved treatments so that more children survive the disease in the future.
