About us

Why does Yorkshire need its own, independent cancer charity?

Yorkshire is one of the regions hardest hit by cancer. More people in Yorkshire are likely to get cancer and more people are likely to die from cancer than almost anywhere else in England. Together we can change this.

Yorkshire Cancer Research exists so more people can live longer healthier lives, free of cancer. Thanks to the kindness of supporters, the charity has been funding cancer research and saving lives since 1925.
