Eight months later: iCancer reaches fundraising target

Last autumn I posted something a bit off-topic for this blog, about the fundraising efforts of Dominic Nutt (the husband of a colleague and friend of mine at the Centre for Law, Justice and Journalism, Glenda Cooper).

Dominic had been diagnosed with a Neuroendocrine tumour (NETs, also known as carcinoid tumours) which are very rare, which cannot be cured by drugs, chemotherapy or radiotherapy. He writes in the Telegraph today that so far, there is no sign that, following his operation, the cancer has come back.

Together with the author Alexander Masters, he set up the iCancer campaign, which has today announced that it has reached its target for the Oncological Virus Foundation, to enable further scientific research at Uppsala University in Sweden – with the help of 3,846 donors (significantly, £1.4 million was donated by a single donor, Vince Hamilton).

Information about the next stage of the project can be found here.
