YOUR Cancer is not just about your cancer: it’s about making it OUR cancer.
Launched by AstraZeneca in 2018, YOUR Cancer is a platform reaching national and community difference makers in cancer care focused on catalyzing the oncology community to redefine cancer care. As we continue to identify real solutions to ensure that patient-centric, coordinated care is available to everyone who needs it, we come closer to achieving our bold ambition of one day eliminating cancer as a cause of death.
YOUR Cancer seeks to build a future where we can realize the potential of a cure for all patients. And where all have equitable access to the latest screens, genomic tests and targeted therapies. We are rallying organizations and change-makers in the cancer community, harnessing the power of diverse perspectives to achieve our objectives at the intersection of four key pillars: precision medicine, early intervention, access and health equity, and equality.
Delivering the latest advancements in targeted therapies to all people who stand to benefit.

We have a deep-rooted heritage in Oncology with current medicines in lung, ovarian, breast and blood cancers and a commitment to following the science to bring new treatments to earlier stages of disease and new tumor types.
