How we work

A mission focused on increasing awareness, education and support.

Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide (accounting for an estimated 9.6 million deaths in 2018). In the UK alone, someone is diagnosed with cancer every two minutes. With your help, we can raise awareness of all cancers, highlighting the importance of self-examination, the different treatments, side effects and the options available. Cancer impacts us all, and our mission is to help shape a world where everyone has the best opportunity to survive cancer. World Cancer Care is supported by fully qualified medical professionals, enabling us to consistently and compassionately provide reliable advice, encouraging people to self-check and visit their GP if they have any concerns.

Hope, strength and encouragement: It all stems from sharing stories
