Let's beat oesophagus cancer for my dad, Paul

In memory of

Paul Gelder

My Story

My lovely dad, Paul, was so brave, positive and absolutely determined to beat his cancer and live as long as he possibly could, but oesophagus cancer is so aggressive - the sixth biggest cause of cancer death in the UK. Worst of all, because he had no symptoms - as is so common with this kind of cancer - it spread before he knew he had it and he barely had a chance to fight it. I want to make sure this doesn’t happen to anyone else. Cancer Research UK supports research into all aspects of cancer through the work of over 4,000 scientists, doctors and nurses but your donation here will go specifically into oesophagus cancer research. If you are a UK taxpayer the value of your donation can increase by 25% under the Gift Aid scheme – at no additional cost to you. Please tick the Gift Aid box when you donate.


Oesophageal cancer

Oesophageal cancer rates are rising in the UK, and it's one of the hardest cancers to treat. It’s the sixth most common cause of cancer death and survival rates are poor. Help fund one of Cancer Research UK's top priorities – finding ways to improve survival from the disease.
