Breakthrough Cancer Research is a medical research charity that funds the most innovative cancer research throughout Ireland and internationally. We focus our research on developing treatments for poor prognosis and incurable cancers, and over the last number of years we have brought eight cancer treatments from the laboratory to clinical trial. This includes the recently opened trial for patients with chemo resistant oesophageal cancer, the ongoing trial for patients with basal cell carcinomas and recent trials for colorectal cancer and malignant melanoma. These investigator led trials are examples of how incredible public support can help translate ideas in the lab directly to patients in the clinic. .
We believe the best way to change the future of cancer care is to invent it. That is why we are working hard to make sure that families, friends and communities across Ireland have access to the best treatments for cancer and never have to hear that the cure for their cancer does not exist. At Breakthrough our mission to make 100% Survivors for 100% of cancers. Our world class researchers are beating cancer, one genius breakthrough at a time
of €500 target
Breakthrough Cancer Research funds the efficient and effective development of new treatments for cancer. We work to significantly impact the number of people who can survive this disease. Research programmes funded by Breakthrough Cancer Research must focus on translating lab discoveries into new treatment opportunities. To this end we work closely with clinicians in practice all over Ireland so that our research is targeted at finding new options for poor prognosis and incurable cancers.
idonate was established in 2011 to assist charities & non profits in fundraising. Our aim is to provide tools for both charities and fundraisers to help raise much needed funds.
