Oracle Cancer Trust supports ground-breaking research into head and neck cancer. We fund innovative research projects into clinical best practice and surgical techniques that aim to make a significant difference to the lives of our patients. Our aim is to source stable and predictable funding for our selected research projects so that we can commit to multi-year research contracts.
There are 4x more cases of head and neck cancer as testicular cancer. It covers a complex and wide range of cancers which are notoriously difficult to diagnose, covering as they do, over 30 different types including tongue, lip, gums, soft palate, base of tongue, throat, sinuses, salivary glands and lymph nodes.
Barrie Dawson is one of our star fund-raisers. Over the last 12 years he has raised an amazing £59,000 for Oracle Cancer Trust. Each year Barrie takes part in the Paris to Hayling bike ride. This entails cycling a total of 400 miles, around 80 miles a day to complete the ride. He has been training hard, cycling over a hundred miles a week and gradually increasing his distance up and down the hills near his home in Hampshire.
14 years ago, Barrie was told that he had terminal Thyroid cancer but eventually after surgery from Oracle founder, Peter Rhys-Evans at the Royal Marsden Hospital, his life was saved. click here to read more
