World Cancer Day

Tue 31st January 2017

Saturday 4 February is World Cancer Day and people around the world are coming together to spread the word about cancer prevention, cancer awareness and cancer charities in a bid to battle cancer worldwide.

The Rangers Charity Foundation has supported many cancer charities over the years, including Maggie’s Cancer Care as a tribute to the late, great Sandy Jardine, Teenage Cancer Trust, The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice and the Prostate Cancer Charity.

This season we are proud to be working with Breast Cancer Care Scotland and the Beatson Cancer Charity, supporting their work fighting cancer and helping those with a cancer diagnosis.  

Breast Cancer Care Scotland is the only Scotland-wide charity providing specialist support and tailored information for anyone affected by breast cancer, helping thousands of people every day find a way to live with, through and beyond breast cancer.

Breast Cancer Care’s free Helpline (0808 800 6000) is there for anyone who wants to talk about either breast health or breast cancer and all calls are answered by specialist nurses or experienced helpline staff.  Whatever the worry, the Helpline is a confidential way to find information about breast cancer and the support on offer.

The Beatson Cancer Charity provides invaluable support to people who have been diagnosed with cancer and their families in the west of Scotland.Cancer affects so many people’s lives and despite improvements in survival rates, more people than ever before are being diagnosed with cancer.  Scotland has one of the highest rates in Europe with 2 in 5 of us developing cancer at some point in our lives. 

The Foundation has pledged to raise £10,000 this season to help fund the Beatson Cancer Charity’s Radiotherapy Research Project.  This pioneering three year project aims to increase the effectiveness of radiotherapy treatments and significantly increase survival rates and improve quality of life for people who require radiotherapy as part of their treatment plan.
