Help for Heroes was founded by Bryn and Emma Parry in October 2007 out of a desire to help the wounded Servicemen and women returning from Afghanistan and Iraq.
The message of the charity is simple: We are strictly non political and non critical; we simply want to help. We believe that anyone who volunteers to serve in time of war, knowing that they may risk all, is a hero.
These are ordinary people doing extraordinary things and some of them are living with the consequences of their service for life. We may not be able to prevent our soldiers from being wounded, but together we can help them get better.
We’re the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. Our groundbreaking work in finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer has saved millions of lives.
Our aim is to ensure more people survive cancer. The term 'cancer’ actually refers to more than 200 diseases that all involve the uncontrolled, abnormal growth of cells, which makes our vision of beating cancer a complex challenge. Sadly, more than one in three of us will get cancer at some point. It’s vital that we continue our research so that many more lives can be saved.
Thanks to our supporters, our work has helped transform the way cancer is prevented, diagnosed and treated today. We’re proud of our achievements. Survival rates have doubled in the last 40 years, and we’ve helped prevent many thousands of new cases of the disease.
