The Rarer Cancers Foundation

The Rarer Cancers Foundation

The Rarer Cancers Foundation (RCF) is a national cancer charity whose mission is to ensure that people with rarer cancers have access to the best services and outcomes in Europe. RCF raises awareness for people affected by rare or less common cancers.

 

Sadly over 122,500 people will be diagnosed with a rarer cancer every year which equates to approx 52% of all cancer diagnoses. RCF provides a bespoke helpline, produces education resources for patients, their families and health professionals, organises supportive networking for patients, carers and clinicians and, most importantly, campaigns for change.

 

In the past three years RCF has made a significant impact for rarer cancers by:

  • Publishing information on different aspects of rare cancers

  • Creating a network for patients needing help

  • Tackling the postcode lottery

  • Securing access to treatment for thousands of patients

  • Changing the law

  • Securing a commitment to make available treatments to patients with rare cancers

  • Persuading the Government to set up the new Cancer Drug Fund
