Leave a legacy

Every week in Yorkshire, 592 people are diagnosed with cancer.

Yorkshire is big and beautiful and while we have much to celebrate, sadly more people in our region are likely to have their lives cut short by cancer than almost anywhere else in England.

As Yorkshire’s independent cancer charity, we are dedicated to changing this. Our goal is that by 2025, at least 2,000 more people in our region survive cancer every year.

How we help

Bev and Tim's experience

"Bev went through nine months of all that cancer demands but did so with a smile and a determination to get through. Behind the scenes are those oft unsung heroes who do all the research into the disease and whose work makes everything possible for the hospital team to succeed."

Do something amazing for Yorkshire

We wouldn’t be able to help the people of Yorkshire avoid and survive cancer without the efforts of hundreds of volunteers across the region. Your time is incredibly valuable to us, and every minute counts.
