The Bob Champion Cancer Trust
How it all began
Bob Champion and Aldaniti won the 1981 Grand National, the interest and
enthusiasm generated by 'racing's greatest fairytale' led to the
foundation in 1983 of The Bob Champion Cancer Trust. Five years later,
nearly to the day of the victory, the Bob Champion Cancer Research Unit
was opened within the Royal Marsden NHS Trust Hospital in Sutton,
The Trust's commitments have extended beyond the Unit with
two patient-related projects: the Aldaniti Rehabilitation Unit plus the
Bob Champion Lounge, a leisure area for those having prolonged
The Bob Champion Research Centre for Urological
Cancer forms part of the first male dedicated cancer research centre in
the UK and helps bring together research expertise into prostate,
testicular and bladder cancer. Our aims are to improve methods of
detection and treatment, to identify cancer genes, and ultimately to
eradicate male cancers.
