Your donations make a huge difference
In today’s world, sadly you will be unlikely to find anyone who has not been, or does not know, someone affected by cancer. The statistics* make grim reading:
- One in two people will be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives.
- In the UK in 2014 there were around 357,000 new cases of cancer, that’s a depressing 980 cases diagnosed every day.
- There were around 163,000 cancer deaths in the UK in 2014, that’s a shocking 450 deaths every day.
- Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer.
- Every four minutes someone in the UK dies from cancer.
Cancer Ninjas fundraising helps our supported charity, Cancer Research UK, fund vital research into cures and treatments into all types of cancer. We hope to play our part in finding a cure for this awful disease and make these dreadful statistics just a distant memory of the past.

How Cancer Ninja's fundraising helps cancer sufferers
By fundraising for Cancer Research UK, we are only funding the best science, that stands the best chance, of making a real difference for people affected by cancer.
Cancer Research UK is working to prevent cancer, diagnose it earlier, develop new treatments and optimise existing treatments to make them more effective.
Cancer Ninjas fundraising also helps fund clinical trials that are vital for improving cancer treatments, leading to life changing research, that has saved the lives of many thousands of people in the UK and all over the world. These clinical trials cover a wide range of treatments including radiotherapy, immunotherapy and chemotherapy, as well as cancer prevention, early diagnosis and screening.
Research will help to find a cure
Cancer Ninjas are dedicated to beating cancer through ground-breaking research. It is only through this research that we can unlock the potential cures for this devastating disease.
By Cancer Ninjas supporting Cancer Research UK, we know we are funding the highest quality research, with the greatest potential, to bring benefits to people affected by all types of cancer. Much of the research is cutting edge and could lead to important advances in the understanding of this complex and horrid disease.
Cancer Research UK’s work to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer has saved millions of lives, but they won’t stop until cancer has been beaten for good... and nor will we.
