Dear Friends and Supporters,
2017 was a very busy and productive year for Oracle Cancer Trust. As well as our new collaboration with Oxford-based head and neck research charity “Heads Up”, our scientific research committee approved several new projects bringing our total number of funded projects to 13. This has only been made possible from the generous donations by our supporters for which I am incredibly grateful. To this day, Oracle remains the UK’s leading charity dedicated to funding research into head and neck cancer.
Late 2017 our Patron HRH Princess Alexandra retired from her role as Patron to Oracle Cancer Trust. We are thankful for HRH Princess Alexandra’s support of our charity over the years from attending events to raising the profile of head and neck cancer.
Over the past ten years, Oracle has invested over £5m into our research programmes discovering these new and improved treatments. Oracle’s vision is to continue to focus on funding early-stage research and proof-of-concept projects. New projects include a three-year PhD project at Queen Mary’s University / Barts Hospital in London and a new surgical project due to start mid-2018 involving several surgical centres around the UK.
We have a number of events in 2018 including our popular golf day on the 27th September at Malden Golf Club in Surrey, our annual research event on the 9th October and our 13th Glory of Christmas Concert on December 3rd.
We look forward to seeing you at one of our events, and thank you for your ongoing support.
With best wishes,
Peter Rhys Evans
Chairman and Founder
