Stand up to cancer with mydentist

Stand up to Cancer alongside mydentist

We’re very proud supporters of Cancer Research UK, throughout the year we’ve been fundraising across our 670 UK-wide practices and at our mydentist support centre in Kearsley. We’ve raised lots so far, but it’s not enough – so we’re ready to kick cancers butt throughout the whole month of October for Stand Up To Cancer – will you join us? You’ll be part of a collective force of people raising millions.

Last year we raised over £31,000 for SU2C between our practices in October which we couldn’t be prouder of, and this year we’re aiming even higher!

1 in 2 people will be affected by cancer in their lifetime. But we can do something about it. 100% of the money you raise for and donate to Stand Up To Cancer will fund translational research. That's right, all of it. This takes developments in the lab and transforms them into new tests and treatments for cancer patient’s right here in the UK.

What is translational research?

The money that we raise for SU2C will fund translational research - research designed to speed breakthroughs from the petri dish in the lab to the patients who need them right now, saving lives. Simply put, without translational research, we will not beat this disease.
