Our Members

All our members work in the field of rare and less common cancer, ie, outside the 'big four' cancers of breast, bowel, lung and prostate.


Our membership is predominantly made up of small patient support group cancer charities though some of our members are also active in research. 

The majority of our membership have an annual income of less than £1 million and many of those have an income of less than £100,000[i].


More than 80 per cent of Cancer52's member organisations[ii] work with rare cancers, i.e., one that affects five people or fewer in 10,000[iii].
