This year we’ll continue to fund some of the most exciting and ground-breaking research there is.

Mark’s story touched so many of us when he shared it with us on the night of Stand Up To Cancer. After Mark lost his wife, Kate, to breast cancer, his son Robbie was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Robbie died aged 10, just five years after his mum. Before he died, Robbie thought up and named his own charity, robbiesrally, with the aim of helping children with brain tumours and their families...

Back in October, you joined us for an epic night of TV on Channel 4, when we laughed, cried and raised millions for life-saving cancer research. Some of the most poignant moments were during the celebrity version of Gogglebox, as we watched 25-year-old Jamie tell his story about living with an incurable brain tumour, and Mark speak about losing his wife, Kate, and son, Robbie, to cancer. Mark...
