How Your Donations Are Having An Impact On Cancer Research

How Your Donations Are Having An Impact On Cancer ResearchWe would like to share with our fantastic supporters the impact they are having on Cancer Research projects and making a real contribution to improving cancer treatments in Sussex.

Saturday 13th March saw the first inaugural Cancer Research Showcase organised by students from the Brighton & Sussex Medical School (BSMS). The students were from the Oncology, Haematology and Palliative Care (OHP) Society, a student-led society at the Medical School.


While the event was celebrating and demonstrating the impact of making a donation on overall cancer research projects the society chose the Sussex Cancer Fund as their beneficiary for their fundraising efforts. You can see a recording of the whole event here but for an edited version of projects funded by the Sussex Cancer Fund see the video below.
