We have started a crowdfunding project for which we’re aiming to raise £5,000 for Supportive Care Packs for Patients with Cancer.

Every year approximately 370, 000 people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK. Receiving a cancer diagnosis is often a very difficult time in a person's life.

We are on a mission to support urology patients at the Churchill Hospital by offering a Cancer Support Package at the beginning of their chemotherapy or radiotherapy treatment.

We believe that simple gestures like this make a huge difference to the mind set of someone going through cancer treatment to give them huge emotional support and to help support their well being.

These care packs are also available for business to support – please get in touch.

Do You C Us?

3 July 2021

Do You C UsUCARE are working with Cancer52 and Pfizer for the ‘Do You C Us?’ campaign to raise awareness of rare and less common cancers.

Despite the name, rare and less common cancers account for nearly half of new cancer diagnoses and over half of cancer-related deaths.

Due to COVID-19 there has been a fall in the number of people diagnosed with all kinds of cancer. We need to identify people 'missing' from the system.

UCARE is a member of Cancer52. Cancer52 represents nearly 100 predominantly small patient support group cancer charities united by their vision of seeing a better future for everyone affected by the rare and less common cancers.
