Bone Cancer Research Trust (BCRT)
Our vision: ‘We want a world where lives are no longer limited by primary bone cancer’. The Bone Cancer Research Trust (BCRT) was set up in 2006 by a group of bereaved families with a common goal – to improve outcomes for people affected by primary bone cancer. We aim to achieve this through Research, Awareness, Information and Support. About 450 young people are diagnosed with primary bone cancer each year in the UK and Ireland. The two most common types of primary bone cancer are osteosarcoma and Ewing’s sarcoma, which largely affect children and young people. The average age of diagnosis is 15. BCRT funds research into the causes and treatment of primary bone cancer, in order to improve outcomes for future bone cancer patients.
