Charity

Worldwide Cancer Research is an independent charity whose global aim is to save lives that are being lost to cancer by improving prevention, detection and treatment. Worldwide Cancer Research is the only charity dedicated to the worldwide fight against cancer. Since 1980, the charity has played a major role in funding ground breaking cancer research. At present they are funding over 215 cancer research projects in more than 23 countries.

Cancer is a condition that affects us all. I lost my mother to breast cancer at the age of two, and it has made a profound impact on my life. Over the years many of my friends and family have been diagnosed with various types of cancer. When a family member was recently diagnosed with breast cancer, I knew it was time to do my bit to raise money and awareness for cancer research.

Fighting cancer starts with you! By donating money to Worldwide Cancer Research, you will be directly assisting the ongoing fight to find a cure to cancer.

In mid-2014 the charity changed its name from The Association for International Cancer Research (AICR) to Worldwide Cancer Research. To find out more about the ongoing work of this charity please watch the AICR videos below, thanks!

While on the road I was able to visit four AICR funded labs in both Finland and Greece. My visit to The University of Patras in Greece can be watched below.

  1. Well done on being freshly pressed.. this will help the fundraising efforts.. Apologies for not funding you myself at this time as I have just sponsored several friends in the Race For Life here in the uk.. Wishing you well on your trip

  2. I really like your project. I also had a member of my family who had a cancer even if we had a lucky end. I discovered that this doesn’t happen only to others and your life is impacted for ever. Good luck!

  5. Hi Chris,
    This is Drew from the SEDA AFL Class in Melbourne
    It was a privilege for you to come in earlier this year and tell us about your amazing adventure around the world. We loved every part of your adventure and hope for the very best in the future. We are also proud to say we raised a bit of money for the AICR throughout the year running various activities.

    • Hi Drew,

      Thank you for getting in touch. I have been meaning to call Amos for quite some time now, and I really appreciate your ongoing fundraising efforts throughout the year! It was a lovely experience to meet the group, as well as get an insight into the SEDA AFL program! I’m teaching History and English now in Sydney, but as you know it’s all NRL talk instead of AFL this far north! All donations are made through my Justgiving page, https://www.justgiving.com/chriscycling4cancer/. Once the donation is made you will receive an email with all the paperwork, but if you would like to make the donation in another way please send through an email and we can discuss this further. If there is anything else you would like me to do with the group please let me know 🙂

      Thanks for all your support!

      Chris

      PS – please tell the students I’m really impressed with their fundraising efforts, and that I appreciate all their help towards Worldwide Cancer Research!
