Support Debbie Fund and help find a cure for cervical cancer

        

Cervical Cancer is the second most common female cancer. Around the world one woman dies from cervical cancer every 2 minutes- thats 250,000 women each year. 

Debbie Fund is the only organisation devoted solely to the discovery of new treatments for cervical cancer.

Debbie Fund has established, at the UCL Cancer Institute, the world's first dedicated  research programme into treatments for cervical cancer. Every pound raised funds this research. Please help Debbie Fund in any way you can.



 

This , please give your support to the Debbie Fund lab

Tuesday 2nd December is the first official   in the UK and Debbie Fund is asking its friends and supporters to spread the word about the fantastic work that our research team is doing in order to find a cure for cervical cancer, and to make a small donation to help with the cost of running the lab for a single day. 

Our dedicated and enthusiastic scientists work tirelessly in the lab every day researching into treatments that will stop women dying from cervical cancer, and Debbie Fund needs your help to continue funding this research. 


So please make a donation today to support the lab- the scientists are the ones who will find the cure.


Good Luck to Tom Kislingbury who will be running the 2015 London Marathon for Debbie Fund.

Please sponsor him here and help Debbie Fund to continue its ground breaking research into new treatments for cervical cancer.

Debbie Fund Research

Inside the lab: the progress of the research. Watch our new film here. See how research is progressing and how vitally important this research is.

Research into treatments for cervical cancer continues to be very encouraging and work on antibodies developed by the Debbie Fund team has now been published and presented at International conferences.  Test tube studies showing that the Debbie Fund antibodies inhibit the migration of cancer cells have been particularly exciting.

 The aim of the Debbie Fund antibody project?  to provide a new means of  delivering a toxic payload direct to cervical cancer tumour cells without damaging surrounding  healthy cells- a “magic bullet” for cervical cancer.


 


 



Debbie Fund Genomics Project

This ground breaking work continues. Debbie Fund researchers have recently published early findings about how the blueprint stored in our DNA becomes corrupted, leading to the development of cervical cancer. We are now trying to learn more about this process, and how this knowledge could help us to identify individuals at increased risk of developing cervical cancer.
We are also looking at the epigenetics of cervical cancer. Read more. 


The Debbie Fund genomics project is funded thanks to generous support from ICAP

"I hope that one day a lady will come up to me and tell me that she had cervical cancer, but because of a drug that came out of our research, she survived.” Sarah Phillips (16)
