The fundraising project

Cancer touches so many people's lives, if not for themselves, through friends and relatives. When cancer is mentioned the treatments that instantly come to mind are surgery, chemotherapy and radiation. Who has heard of radio frequency ablation? Who is offered radio frequency ablation?

The Cancer Thermal Ablation Fund has been set up to increase the awareness and the availability of this important procedure in the overall treatment for cancer. In the main, the funds raised to date have provided training bursaries for many UK based doctors and supported educational meetings. Moving forward funds will also contribute to developing the technology and ongoing research. Enquiries are received every week via this website which is regularly updated and as a result many people are being referred for RF ablation assessment and treatment.


All donations will be paid into The Cancer Thermal Ablation Fund held by the University College London Hospitals Charities - registration number 229771. Donations can be made directly to this special fund with cheques payable to UCLH Charities (0401). These donations should be sent to: UCLH Trustees Dept. 1st Floor, Maple House, 149 Tottenham Court Road, London, W1P 9LL.
