Deutsche Krebshilfe: Helfen, Forschen, Informieren

German Cancer Aid

German Cancer Aid is Germany’s leading non-governmental funding and non-profit-making organization of oncology-related activities. Based in Bonn, our core objectives are to improve care for cancer patients, promote research and to heighten cancer awareness through information, education and public campaigns. German Cancer Aid was founded in 1974 and follows the motto "Helping. Researching. Informing.". We support research projects to improve prevention, diagnosis, therapy, after-care and self-help. Fundamentally, all the projects supported are driven by high levels of scientific quality and the potential for significant clinical impact, so that cancer patients rapidly benefit from new knowledge. We also invest in the training of future generations of scientists and medical doctors.

But that is not our only task. We launch campaigns, organise information events and offer brochures to inform the public about the various types of cancer.  Awareness, prevention and early detection are very important to us.  Cancer patients get advice and help. We support self-help associations and provide advanced training for those who deal on a daily basis with cancer patients and their needs.

For almost 40 years, German Cancer Aid has been an important contact for health and research politics. Because of its sustained work and the involvement of leading experts, it has enormous influence. It has made a major contribution to the improvement in the care of cancer patients throughout Germany and has helped to ensure that the voices of cancer patients are heard.
