About us

The Throat Cancer Foundation (TCF) was founded in 2012 by  oropharyngeal cancer survivor Jamie Rae. Following his treatment and recovery, Jamie was concerned by the lack of resources and support available to people facing throat cancers, and established the charity to provide what was missing: information and reassurance for those facing throat cancers.

We are dedicated to reducing the impact of throat cancers on individuals and wider society. We are here to offer support, and want to ensure that anyone affected, including the person who has cancer, their friends, and their loved ones, has access to the most up to date information available regarding their illness, the available treatments, and what to expect in recovery.

Our work is guided by a team of leading cancer experts and consultants working in research and treatment of the illnesses we aim to fight. Find out more about the members of our team.

The Throat Cancer Foundation is also a founding member of HPV Action, which is a collaborative partnership of 48 patient and professional organisations that are working to reduce the health burden of HPV.

Raise money to support us and have fun while you do it!
