Research is our best hope against cancer and ground breaking research and practices start with a big idea.Nationwide
We’re getting cancer on the run.
WHAT IF WE COULD FIND NEW WAYS TO REDUCE THE EFFECTS OF CANCER?
Almost everyone at some point will be affected by cancer in their lifetime. New Zealand has a growing and aging population, which means more people are being diagnosed with cancer.
Cancer Research Trust, a registered charity organisation, has provided over $16 million to fund bold ideas to help get cancer on the run.
Founded in 2002, the Trust funds research projects and professional development for New Zealand health professionals and researchers to help prevent, diagnose and treat all cancer types and care for people living with cancer, and ensure that New Zealanders’ management of cancer is amongst the best in the world.
We help those ideas grow through acting as an accelerator to support tin order to help reduce the impact of cancer on our families, friends and community.
100% of every dollar donated goes towards cancer related projects and training, and all projects funded by the Trust are rigorously reviewed by a panel of experts before acceptance, in order to maximise the value of those donations.
Research helps save lives - now and tomorrow.
