The first event in 2012 became the most successful charity fundraiser on UK commercial TV, watched by nearly 8 million viewers.  Every single penny of the staggering £8 million raised went to Stand Up To Cancer. The money helped finance 12 clinical trials around the UK, including the most sophisticated bowel cancer trial ever to be undertaken in the world. Research has already enabled us to reach the point where two in four people will now survive cancer for at least ten years, thanks to advances such as new treatments. With exciting new trials already being worked on we are aiming to reach the point where three in four people will survive cancer in the next 20 years.
