Hope Against Cancer is Leicestershire and Rutland’s local cancer research charity. We were established in 2003 to bring cutting-edge research to our area and make clinical trials available to local people. Since 2003 we have raised £4m and funded over 40 research projects tackling many different forms of cancer.
Hope Against Cancer’s vision is working for a future where more local people survive cancer.
Our mission is to fund innovative research that leads to improved treatments and better outcomes for people and that achieves the greatest impact in the local and national fight against cancer.
Hope Against Cancer work in partnership with local universities and hospitals to fund research to ensure that Leicestershire remains a hub of expertise in cancer research and treatment.
In 2012 we established a dedicated clinical trials unit at Leicester Royal Infirmary to offer patients access to new medicines and therapies. We fund our very own HOPE Nurse there providing additional care and support to trials patients.
