Support The Ella Project today
Adenoid Cystic Carcinoma (ACC) is a rare head and neck cancer. Because it’s rare, there hasn’t been much research into it. This means the medical community still don’t know much about it.
Rare cancers like ACC are less funded than common cancers. This means it takes special people like The Christie’s supporters to help make research into ACC happen.
We are also in the unique position of having the UK’s leading specialist in ACC – Dr Rob Metcalf – based at The Christie. This means the world is now looking to The Christie for answers about how to successfully treat ACC.
Cancers like ACC are difficult to treat and this means ACC patients often have limited treatment options. This is why we’ve launched The Ella Project, a UK-wide study focused entirely on ACC. It’s named after Christie patient Ella, who tragically died with ACC in December 2021.
After Ella’s ACC diagnosis in March 2017, her whole life changed. From that point on, she was determined to make sure the next generation of ACC patients have more treatment options.
We’ve been able to launch the Ella project because of Ella’s incredible fundraising efforts and determination. And now, you can help us take the next crucial steps towards finding more effective drug treatments for ACC.
Any donations you can give for The Ella Project will make a huge difference. Your support can help us take the next crucial steps towards finding more effective drug treatments for ACC.
