Research funding and partnerships

Right now there are almost 3 million people living with cancer in the UK. This is set to grow to 4 million by 2030, and we face a future where 1 in 2 of us will be diagnosed at some point in our lives.

At Macmillan we know that research plays a vital role in helping us understand how we can best support everyone with cancer to live life as fully as they can.
