Caring Cancer Trust’s Mission

To fund ethical original non-animal tested research into the causes, early diagnosis, innovative treatment and cure of Cancer, and prevention of Cancer at pre-cancerous stage.

We target cancer and not animals!

To provide special Kids2Go Healing Holidays of Adventure and Create2Go Art and Music workshops for Children recovering from Cancer, enabling them to regain their self-confidence and re-ignite their passion for life after the trauma of their illness and lengthy treatment.

To provide in-patient support at hospital paediatric oncology units in southern England, providing comforts and amenities for children suffering from Cancer, and support for their caring parents and siblings.

To provide emergency funds for amenities, equipment and facilities to adult Cancer sufferers to ameliorate their sickness, improve their quality of life, limit their stress and, where possible, help their recovery.

Our Volunteers

Caring Cancer Trust’s non-animal tested research programme and associated Kids2Go and Create2Go healing holidays our wholly managed and run by dedicated unpaid volunteers. We employ no paid staff, no fundraisers on salary or commission, no call centres or ‘chuggers’ and send no unsolicited mail.

Your donations go directly to help children suffering from Cancer and their caring families, and to fund groundbreaking Cancer research which uses no live animals.
