Action Cancer is a Northern Ireland cancer charity, established in 1973 by cancer specialist Dr George Edelstyn.

Our founder's vision for the future was that people in Northern Ireland would be free from the risk of cancer. At Action Cancer today our mission is to save lives and support people and we maintain a pioneering role in the development of cancer services.
