Our Movement

ACT for Cancer is a social movement. We’re bringing together patients, relatives, friends, clinicians - anyone who wants to fight, together, to realise Tessa’s vision.

These stories have been shared with us from those who have helped, supported, or been moved by our cause. Please take some time to read them, and see why our mission is so important to so many people.

‘That so many people with untreatable cancer are missing out on clinical trials is a tragedy, and something must be done about it.’

‘There was no formal offer of treatment; no constructive support. When we needed help most, we felt adrift in a very frightening place.’

‘I have a 7-month old baby now and the thought of him going through what my dad did is enough to make me feel ill.’
