No need is too small and no voice is too quiet to be heard. We will devote the time and energy necessary to educate, advocate and support people living with Wand beyond cancer. We also want to build #TheBigProject


Working in the Cancer Area as a Cancer Advocate and fundraiser was supposed to be a short-term commitment, but it became a life-long journey! I am unable to return to work. This has become my life. I'm so fortunate to be able to impact the lives of others, all while partnering with some of the most passionate and driven people on the globe.

Foundation History

2007 - Derrick Evans a normal 30 year old father of 1 goes to the Christie and his life changes forever. He was diagnosed with stage 4 Cancer after leaving a lump for two years. This decision cost Derrick his immediate future and meant having to undergo a lot of treatment, that if he had gone earlier could have possibly been avoided.

2008 - Derk's Army is formed. Raising funds for The Christie.

2012 - Derrick Evans Beats cancer for the 3rd time and has a Stemcell transplant.

2013 - Derrick Evans finds himself unable to return to work due

to the after effects of his treatment. So instead he starts as a Cancer Advocate and Fundraiser. 

2014 - Derk's Army changes its format to Cancer Warriors and works with other cancer survivors on the team to raise money for The Christie. With new focus they aim to create awareness and support to cancer patients.  

2015 - Derrick Evans recognized that Tameside needs a Greater Awareness and has the idea of #TheBigProject. Also starts to campaign for a cancer unit within Tameside Hospital. After speaking with members of the group they all agree, it needs to happen. Cancer warriors grows to more than 250 volunteers in 4 countries worldwide & the Cancer warriors buddie scheme takes off helping people in the local community. 

2016 -January- Cancer Warriors Applies for Charity Reg No. 

and on March 3rd 2016 Cancer Warriors Becomes a Charity.
