About Us .

We are the result of a collaboration between a patient advocate and medical oncologist, both passionately committed to further research into salivary gland cancers.  We’re firmly embedded in the UK and Worldwide research communities. We also have strong links with other patient support groups.

You can read our story in an article published by The BMJ.  It can be accessed here.

We aim to provide reliable, consistent information and support to those with salivary gland cancers, those that support them and those that are working to treat or cure them.  As a new charity we welcome your support in whatever way you are able to contribute.  We value your time, your knowledge, your presence and your financial support.  Everyone is welcome.


In addition to the Board of Directors, we have a patient/carer committee and a scientific committee of researchers and clinicians who provide input and direction to the Board of Directors of Salivary Gland Cancer UK.
