better and longer lives
for people with cancer
We are convinced a moonshot, with high tech innovation, is not enough to tackle cancer. Bringing new and valuable cancer treatments, that cannot be monetised, to cancer patients is also indispensable if we want to impact cancer survival statistics. Discover our groundshot!
The Anticancer Fund is a research organisation with an international scope. We depend fully on donations to finance our work.
We invest in the most promising research to make measurable progress in the fight against cancer.
We strive to improve survival and quality of life, financial return is not within the scope of our activities.
We identify untapped potential in cancer research leading to pragmatic solutions for patients in need.
We seek impact and we invest our resources where we believe we can make the most progress.
Every cancer deserves the same attention, regardless of prevalence or profitability.
