Every 17 minutes someone in Yorkshire is told they have cancer. 

Yorkshire Cancer Research exists so that more people can live longer, healthier lives, free of cancer. Thanks to our kind supporters, we bring vital cancer research to Yorkshire and pioneer new and innovative services for people with cancer. These life-giving medical breakthroughs are helping more people survive cancer – here in Yorkshire, and beyond.

Our independent charity has been funding cancer research and saving lives since 1925 – here in Yorkshire, and beyond. Thank you for joining this vital mission.

“I’m looking forward to a healthy, happy family Christmas and many more.”

When Neil was diagnosed with bowel cancer, he was referred to a pioneering fitness and wellbeing service to help him prepare for, and recover from, his cancer treatment.

He received personalised fitness, nutrition, and wellbeing support from cancer specialists. In the space of eight weeks Neil was able to lose two stone and significantly improve his fitness so he was able to receive surgery.

Now, 18 months on, Neil has finished his cancer treatment and is looking forward to spending Christmas with his grandchildren.

See your star shine!

Your Yorkshire Star will be added to the Christmas display at the new Yorkshire Cancer Research Centre in Hornbeam Park, Harrogate. The display will be available to view until the shop closes on 24 December 2023.

Please come and visit, we'd love to welcome you! See the centre's opening times on our website.

A Yorkshire Star dedication. The message reads 'Dad, you will forever be my star.'
