Cancer and Polio Research Fund
Registered charity number 326812
We fund research into cancer and other crippling diseases at universities, research institutions and hospitals throughout the country. Our specialism is the spread of cancer, which is the cause of two thirds of all cancer deaths. We are one of the few charities, if not the only one, that supports research into the long-term after-effects of polio, which affect some 40,000 people in the UK. Our aim is to understand the condition better so that we can improve the quality of sufferers' lives.
Cancer and Polio Research Fund offers a variety of events to participate in and raise valuable donations to support the charity. Check out the events below for more information.
