Everyman - Funding research to cross out male cancer
Everyman is the UK's leading male cancer campaign
How much does it cost?Everyman was launched in 1997 and initially raised funds to help set up the £3million Everyman Centre – Europe’s first and only centre dedicated to research into male cancer. We now have to raise £1.5m each year to support the life-saving work that our scientists inside the centre are carrying out.
To give you an idea about how such a massive figure is broken down, we’ve included a mini shopping list of some of our costs below. Every gift we receive in support of the campaign is important to us, regardless of size, as a donation can help us in so many ways.
£25 pays for us to store 4 tumour samples for analysis.
£60 buys a statistics package for our epidemiologists to use to analyse their research results.
£100 pays for us to to store 6,000 blood samples each
£120 pays for two specially treated plates our chemists use to screen compounds against targets in their search for anti-cancer drugs.
