We are the world\u2019s leading cancer charity dedicated to saving lives through research. Our vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.\r\n\r\nIn the 1970s, less than a quarter of people with cancer survived. But over the last 40 years, survival has doubled\u00a0- today half will survive. Cancer Research UK's ambition is to accelerate progress and see three-quarters of people surviving the disease within the next 20 years. We want survival in the UK to be among the best in the world. We\u2019re focusing our efforts in four key areas \u2013 working to help prevent cancer, diagnose it earlier, develop new treatments and optimise current treatments by personalising them and making them even more effective.\r\n\r\nWe\u2019ll continue to support research into all types of cancer and across all age groups. And we\u2019re keeping our focus on understanding the biology of cancer so we can use this vital knowledge to save more lives.
