Saving lives through cancer research thanks to your support

Through cancer research funded by you, we are finding out more and more about how to diagnose treat and how to stop cancer before its starts.

Since 2010, we have been able to invest €25 million into over 100 innovative research projects making the Irish Cancer Society the largest voluntary funder of cancer research in Ireland.

Thanks to the support of the Irish public, investments in cancer research mean more people surviving cancer than ever before.
