We have 116 000 members, 27 000 volunteers and 190 employees, who are all dedicated to promoting cancer cause.

NCS works continuously to improve society’s attitude to the prevention and treatment of cancer. We fight cancer locally, nationally and globally through research and preventive measures, information, support, advice and lobbying.

Our main priorities

NCS receives funding from bequests, gifts, membership fees and lottery funds.

NCS leads the way

We have introduced a number of vital improvements within the field of cancer. Mammogram screening, the Norwegian Cancer Registry, the Varde centres for patients and their families, and cancer coordinators in the municipalities are just some of the measures we have initiated.

NCS’s objectives as enshrined in the Articles of Association are to work to prevent and reduce cancer, and to improve quality of life for patients and their families. These objectives will be realised through the following means:

  • broad-based cancer research
  • information (on the causes of cancer, manifestation, prevention and treatment)
  • cancer care (help for cancer patients and their families)
  • serving as a voice for the cancer cause
  • international work and collaboration

Our vision: A life without cancer
