Bright Red Charity

Bright Red are a regional blood cancer charity established to improve the lives and treatment of people dealing with blood cancer in the north of England. Through care, research and education we are striving to beat illnesses such as leukaemia, lymphoma, myeloma myelodysplasia and myeloproliferative diseases.

We have invested over £6m into the North of England helping to improve patient care, supporting nursing staff development and pushing the boundaries of blood cancer research.

We have played a major role in helping the North of England become one of the best places to be for those unfortunate enough to be diagnosed with a blood cancer.

There are a wide range of blood cancers. Some are more devastating than others, but every diagnosis is life changing. It is often not until you have been touched by them that you realise just how common they are, how dreadful they can be and how much more we need to do to eradicate them.

Join our fight against blood cancer for a brighter future.

Cancer United

The aim of Cancer United is to support the NHS by offering an integrated support service for cancer patients. As a cancer support charity, we offer integrated support to a diverse range of cancer patients to find themselves again after diagnosis, treatment and into recovery. The charity is not cancer specific rather catering for all cancers. The services that Cancer United offers are open to everyone, indeed all those whose lives have been affected by cancer- patients, family, friends and carers whatever race, creed or religious denomination from all walks of life.

We facilitate peer to peer support where patients can share their cancer experience. We provide access to a unique programme of cancer specific exercise via our CU Fitter gym where we help and support to enable cancer patients to move forward with their lives. Cancer United encourages positivity, motivation, determination and offers the opportunity for its beneficiaries to interact with peers whilst learning how to keep well, eat healthily and take exercise.

Cancer United's vision is to improve the lives of every cancer patient in the UK from diagnosis onwards via access to our integrated approach to support focussed on active recovery of both body and mind. To inspire cancer survivors to embrace the things they can do and to refuse to be defined by what they can't.

Cavendish Cancer Care

Cavendish Cancer care believes that people affected by cancer have individual needs that cannot always be fully addressed by their health care providers and social support networks.

We offer a place for people to come to talk, and someone to help deal with the way cancer has affected you and your life. We are an independent charity established over 20 years ago giving free emotional support to people and their families affected by cancer in Yorkshire and Derbyshire.

Although the need for our services is recognised by the NHS we are not directly funded by them. We rely on the generosity of local people to continue offering our services on a free of charge basis.

People affected by cancer often feel a variety of emotions from fear, to anxiety, anger, depression and loneliness. We will work with you and help you to adjust to cancer, improve your emotional wellbeing and enrich your life.

While NHS care treats the disease, Cavendish Cancer Care takes care of the emotional affects of cancer, through complementary therapy and support for people and their families.

We can't cure cancer; we can help you cope with it.

Childhood Eye Cancer Trust

Retinoblastoma, a rare childhood eye cancer, can devastate lives of those affected. Treatment may last years and many children lose at least one eye to save their life. The Childhood Eye Cancer Trust (CHECT) offers vital support to those affected, helping from diagnosis, through school years into adulthood and beyond. CHECT also raises awareness of this cancer and funds research.

Your support enables CHECT to fund global research projects to improve treatments and reduce the negative impact on those babies and young children affected. It helps CHECT educate parents, carers and health professionals about the subtle signs of this cancer so children may be diagnosed sooner and their outcome improved.

CHECT receives no government funding. Without your support none of this would be possible. Thank you for helping to make a difference to the lives of those affected by retinoblastoma.

Cyclists Fighting Cancer

Cyclists Fighting Cancer, launched in 2005, provides a unique and highly effective way of helping kids with cancer throughout activity and exercise. The effects of the disease and associated treatment regimes are numerous; amputations, balance issues, physical weakness, coordination difficulties and lack of self-esteem are just some of the most common side effects.

Enabling a child to ride a bike or specially adapted trike has many benefits; both physical (improved strength, balance and fitness) and emotional (greater confidence and self-esteem). It helps with social re-engagement and rebuilds relationships with friends and peers. It is quality time with family members and an opportunity to build happy memories.

CFC works closely with oncology units at the children's hospitals around the country, regularly visiting these units to make bike and trike applications with families and children. We receive referrals from healthcare terms and other charities working with children with cancer. We also receive applications via our website.

We operate totally on the kind support of the public and cyclists doing bike rides around Britain and across the world. All monies donated make a huge difference to our total fundraising effort and ultimately to the number of children affected by cancer that we support.

Dragonfly Cancer Trust makes a very real and positive difference to the lives of young cancer patients. The demand for our services is rising week on week and without the support of people like you, we would not be able to support all the requests that we receive.

Thank you.

Leukaemia & Myeloma Research UK

Thank you for considering supporting our charity.

WE ARE UNIQUE AMONGST ALL OTHER BLOOD CANCER CHARITIES. We are the only UK charity that offers a FREE umbilical cord blood collection and banking service for qualifying families. This service, called Model Cell Biobank, is designed to allow the collection and storage of cord blood stem cells to families who have a history of cancer in their immediate family and who cannot afford to pay for a private service. These cells will then be available for at least the following 25 years, to treat the child from whom they were collected, or another family member.

The service costs us over £2,000 per collection to deliver and your support could give hope, and possible life saving treatment, to a family who needs it now, or in the future and cannot afford to pay for it themselves.

In addition, we also support research into stem cell therapies to treat blood cancer and seek to raise the awareness of everyone as to the potential benefits of this type of treatment which is not as well known as it should be.

Please help us, help others. Thank you.

Myeloma UK

Myeloma UK is the only national charity in the UK dedicated to myeloma, a rare type of blood cancer arising from plasma cells. At any one time, there are around 17,500 people living with myeloma in the UK.

While there are many effective treatments, there is currently no cure. Myeloma is a relapsing and remitting cancer, meaning patients often experience periods of remission after treatment but relapse over time.

Following a relapse, previous treatments may no longer be effective and alternative options are needed. Myeloma is an individual cancer which differs from person to person meaning patient do not all respond to the same treatments.

Our mission is to make myeloma history. We channel our funds, energy, and resources into the areas that will make the most difference to those living with myeloma.

We fund into areas that will make the most difference to those living with myeloma. We fund vital myeloma research as well as provide information and support to patients and their families to help them deal with everything a myeloma diagnosis brings.

We work to reduce the time it takes for patients to be diagnosed and treated through our healthcare professionals education programme, as well as liaising with patients and key policymakers to improve access to treatment and standards of care.

Rosemere Cancer Foundation

Every year more than 9,000 people face the diagnosis of cancer in Lancashire and South Cumbria. Effective treatment is a major priority for the NHS, but it is expensive and there is little left over for additional facilities and equipment that may make all the difference to the treatment experience of patients and their families. The Rosemere Cancer Foundation works in partnership with local clinical staff to achieve the best possible care for cancer patients in Lancashire and South Cumbria wherever they are treated. It does this by raising funds for cutting edge specialist equipment which is not yet standard in the NHS, local cancer research projects that help improve our understanding of cancer and how it can be better diagnosed and treated, top quality training to help clinical staff share best practice and be the very best they can be and for projects supporting innovative ways to take the fear out of cancer for patients and their families during their treatment.
