York Against Cancer

Since 1987 York Against Cancer has made a significant difference to the lives of people affected by cancer.  We raise money to help local people affected by cancer, providing funding for: Education Projects, Care Projects and Research Projects.

Over the years our achievements include:

Setting up the Jack Birch Unit at the University of York and funding the researchers there.

Funding Specialist Oncology Nurses at the Hospital, a specialist counseling service, a number of care posts and a DVD about bowel cancer.

We have helped train GP receptionists on how to handle bereavements and hard news. We have a family support worker who can visit families and offer advice. 

A very big achievement was our opening the Cancer Care Centre at York Hospital. Here we provide funding for staff and complimentary therapies for patients.

A popular service is our own minibus; we transport patients for radiotherapy treatment to St James hospital in Leeds.

One of our most recent achievements is the purchase of a holiday flat in Whitby where cancer patients and their families can stay free of charge when they need a much needed break.

We are also committed to education and regularly give talks to school pupils and students. To help spread the word about healthy living we have produced children’s sun hats, school education packs and even beer mats found in student bars giving advice on checking for cancers.

We are dedicated to what we do and we have achieved so much so far but we know we can do more and with your help we can!
