About Us

Cancer is a Drag’s aim is to help as many people living with cancer as possible, inclusive of partners, family and friends, to overcome the difficulties they face on a day-to-day basis – by providing financial support where it is most needed, freeing up our beneficiaries and their families to deal with the disease and its treatments – to stop cancer being any more of a drag than it already is.

Donna’s Story

Cancer is a Drag’s Founder met Donna whilst attending several appointments at The Supportive Therapy Unit at King’s College Hospital. We got to know her story and the struggles she was experiencing, on top of her cancer treatment when she contacted us at the charity for support because her washing machine had broken down and she was really struggling to pay her bills with the money she had.

Cancer is a Drag Events

We love an event at Cancer is a Drag. We get to have a lot of fun and raise money for a good cause. So why not come along and see for yourself.

If you’re a manager of a bar or would like to host a Cancer is a Drag event, we’d love to hear from you. You can email us at for more information.

The story of our ‘legs’

In September 2010 a good friend of mine Alan Bugg was diagnosed with the Big C (Non- Hodgkin’s Lymphoma) and whilst receiving treatment he said to me that he was thinking of starting up a charity. He was struggling financially and wanted to help others who were living with cancer, not able to work and experiencing the same problems. He said he wanted to call the charity Cancer is a Drag and I felt honoured when he then asked if I would design a logo for it.

My main goal for the logo was for it to look like the Awareness Ribbon that is used by different charities and I was adamant about this because it is such a well-recognised symbol throughout the world – but I wanted it to have an original twist…

Thank you, Cancer is a Drag
