FORCE CANCER CHARITY

Force is a Devon based charity committed to people whose lives are affected by cancer. Originally set up in 1987 to fund local cancer research, the Charity has expanded to serve the rapidly changing world of cancer services at a local level. Why local? Simply because anyone diagnosed with cancer deserves the best possible treatment and professional support close to home. In September 2004 we opened a purpose built cancer support centre in the grounds of the RD&E Hospital. The Centre is open five days a week and offers a whole range of non-clinical cancer support services. The aim of these services is to ensure that patients and families are never without good support and information from the time of diagnosis. Despite moving into supportive care, research remains a very important part of our work. FORCE funded research is currently focussed on lung and ovarian cancers. Furthermore, FORCE has also helped fund a new generation of equipment. Anyone treated for cancer locally is likely to benefit from equipment provided by the Charity at a total cost of over £2 million. To cover the cost of these commitments we need to raise £700,000 p.a., all of which comes from voluntary donations.

Friends Of Cynthia Spencer Hospice

The Friends Of Cynthia Spencer Hospice is a registered charity and was formed in 1990 by a few individuals; all of whom had come into contact with the Hospice when their respective husbands, wives and close family members had been patients. Since our formation we have gone from strength to strength and do a tremendous amount of fund-raising ourselves. The three main aims of the charity are: - * To raise funds to help with the provision of items which are not available via the N.H.S and to buy those much needed extras for our patients. * To give support to the medical staff and patients in any way we can. * To promote awareness in the local community. The charity's costs are minimal and therefore the majority of the funds raised are spent on patient care.

It is the ICR that is now identifying hundreds of genes that contribute to the development of cancer. And it is the ICR that is developing new drugs to target the genetic causes of many different types of cancer.

Having been responsible for some of the greatest achievements in the history of cancer research, the ICR?s world-leading scientists work tirelessly to continue making progress in the ongoing fight against cancer, but they need your help now, and in the future, to realise their ultimate goal: to see an end to cancer as a life threatening disease.
