Since 2006, the Bone Cancer Research Trust has been at the forefront of the fight against primary bone cancer. Thanks to public donations, over the past 15 years we’ve funded over 300 researchers from 204 academic institutions and hospitals around the UK, and more recently internationally.

Primary bone cancer is not a priority for the major UK cancer research charities. Despite having some of the most brutal treatment regimes and poorest of outcomes, their already low investment has dropped even further in recent years to a mere 0.02% of their research spend, not even close to 1%!

Bone cancer patients and their families deserve better. They are relying on us to provide them with hope for the future – which we can only do with your help!

Patients like Cody, who was diagnosed with bone cancer when he was just 8-years-old and suffered over a year of gruelling chemotherapy and multiple operations, desperately need new kinder treatments. No child at Cody’s age should have to face cancer.

Every 10 minutes, another child like Cody, teenager or adult is diagnosed with this cruel disease, please give them hope and the best chance of life by supporting our life-saving research today by becoming a Research Sponsor for just £5 a month.
