You could use the wording below:
Instead of buying a present for my birthday/anniversary please join me in supporting a good cause. I’m raising money for Cure Cancer UCL and your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate £5 or £500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support. I’ve included information about Cure Cancer @ UCL below. Every cause is worthy but this is close to my heart
The charity aims to fund research to develop new therapeutics for the treatment of Non-Hodgkin’s (Lymphoma). This will be achieved by analysing a class of genes called micro-RNAs in fresh biopsy samples from patients with newly diagnosed lymphoma. These genes are amenable to targeting by a class of drug-like molecules called anti-miRs. By identifying micro-RNAs that are aberrantly active in lymphoma, new anti-miRs will be designed and their activity tested in animal models of lymphoma. Those which show promise will be considered for clinical trials.
