Welcome

Welcome to our Cancer Research and Genetics UK website which is a registered charity number - 1121512. The site has been created to provide a one stop reference guide on Cancer, Research and its Genetic links.

The charity was founded by and is currently managed by patients and people that have been unfortunately affected by or directly suffer from cancer. It is totally volunteer driven and welcomes support and contributions to provide vital direct funding for research into cancer. In conjunction with its sister organisation Bowel Cancer Wales set up by Nick Phillips in memory of his wife Marcia who died of the disease at the age of only 45.

We also have another sister organisation - Prostate Cancer Wales & UK, which aims to improve prostate cancer patient outcomes in the UK.

Tragically my family and I were unaware of the Genetic familial predisposition to cancer and therefore campaign nationally for more awareness, earlier screening and improvements in cancer care to what exists in the UK today.

We are also members of the European Cancer Patient Coalition.
