You will be supporting our work improving the treatment and care of cancer patients through research and raising awareness. Urological cancer is often something difficult for people to talk about in part because of limited knowledge and in part because of embarrassment. Raising awareness and talking about symptoms will help to break down barriers and allow earlier detection and earlier reassurance.

Supporting Urology Research
16 November 2022
We are fundraising for a Research Nurse at the Churchill Hospital in Oxford.
Research nurses provide a huge amount of additional support to the patient and their family at a very difficult time and help them to understand their treatment options.
The performance of Handel's Messiah at the Sheldonian Theatre will be dedicated to fundraising for this.
UCARE has started something new!
19 October 2022
Being the partner of, or carer for a loved with cancer is often a really difficult role. It comes with a host of emotions from upset and fear to just wanting to protect and take the diagnosis away from your loved one. It can be for some a lonely time so finding other people who understand how you really feel can be a great means of support.
After receiving a number of requests we have started up our Male Partners and Carers Support Group. This is specifically for men who are supporting or caring for a partner with cancer.
We hosted our first support group on Friday and look forward to the next one and watching our numbers grow.
Please get in touch if you have found yourself in this position and either wish to have more support, just meet other people, know more or feel you have something to give to other people.
We would love to get to know you!
Our meetings are held once a month and the next one will be on Friday 18th November 2022 at 11.30am. These will initially be on zoom so please contact us for the link but they will vary from face to face meet ups, walks, socials and information talks.
