The earlier a diagnosis can be made, the greater the chance of beating cancer. It’s this fact that keeps us striving to discover even more ways to make this a reality for as many people as possible.
A helping hand for GPs
We’ve recently created a programme to help GPs make cancer decisions based on a patient’s symptoms. We’re confident it will help GPs think about cancer at an earlier stage and are now in the process of rolling it out to as many doctors as possible.

Living with uncertainty
Darren knows all too well what it’s like to live with a delayed diagnosis.
Watch his story below.
Thankfully, he was able to get referred, get tested and a week later was told the results.
‘I returned that Tuesday evening to be told I had testicular cancer. I walked out the building in a surreal world. I couldn’t believe what I had been told.’
Over four months had passed from Darren’s initial visit to the doctor and his diagnosis. We believe this is too long. That’s why we’re determined to do something about it.
