At The Christie, we simply can’t do life-saving work without the support of people like you. Generous donations and fundraising help us keep supporting cancer patients, above and beyond what the NHS funds.
Today, you can play your part in the very latest research and clinical trials. This will help support cancer patients with hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) tumours – rare cancers that can be difficult to treat.
By donating today, you can help fund our new clinical research fellow. Their research will focus on this specific group of rare cancers, with the aim of improving treatment options and, most importantly, survival rates.
Help support hepato-pancreato-biliary patients
Hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) tumours are rare and can be particularly difficult to detect early. This is because their symptoms are often subtle and may include unintentional weight loss, vague abdominal pain or nausea.
As these symptoms are so hard to notice, HPB cancers often aren’t diagnosed until a very late stage. Because of this, HPB tumours are also associated with poor long-term survival.
HPB tumours are often particularly difficult to treat. Some HPB cancer patients often don’t have the option of standard cancer treatments, meaning their only treatment option is a clinical trial.
Clinical trials can offer new hope through different treatments that aim to improve patients’ lives and survival.
None of this is possible without the generosity of our supporters. The new clinical research fellow will be funded entirely by charitable gifts.
That’s why your support now is so vital – literally lifesaving. Please donate today to help fund our new clinical research fellow focusing on HPB tumour research.
