OUR MISSION

We believe that people with rare cancer have the right to live better, longer lives. We make this happen by bringing people together to create opportunities to accelerate research.

Rare cancer affects more than 70,000 people per year in the UK: more than 1 in 5 of the total. Sadly, about two thirds will die from their disease within 5 years- as compared with under half for more common cancers. We believe that this is unacceptable and have set up RareCan to work with people affected by rare cancer to help researchers find better treatments.
