I’m walking 10,000 steps this March for Cancer Research UK, please support me

As a future scientist and a cancer ward volunteer, it is my role to raise awareness before funding on Cancer Research.

In order to overcome and tackle this complex disease, scientists do their utmost ability to identify the genes that cause cancer, understand the biology of tumours and finally be able to design the best fit new cancer treatments/technologies once and for all.

* According to the Cancer Research (UK), there are more than 200 different types of cancer; in which 1 in 2 individuals in the UK will get cancer in their lifetime.
* There are around 17 million new cases of cancer worldwide, accounting for 9.6 million deaths in 2018 ( 1 in 6 deaths are due to cancer).
* With the burden growing in almost every country, prevention of cancer is one of the most significant public health challenges of the 21st century.

Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second most common cancer and the sixth leading cause of death among men worldwide. It is also the most common cancer in men in the UK. 1 in 8 men will get prostate cancer in their lifetime.
The good news:
- The 10-year survival for prostate cancer is 83%.
The bad news:
- Every 45 minutes one man dies from prostate cancer in the UK – that's more than 11,000 men every year.

Indeed, all the amazing supporters and fundraisers have helped the survival rates double, but hey! Let us not stop there.

For this may be a great start and encouragement for my MSc research project on the “Development of RNA panel for improving the diagnostic pathway for prostate cancer patients”

I would give this one advice I always tend to remind myself of “ Be the energy you wish to attract”, your generous donations and support will make a huge difference to those touched by this cruel disease.

I here would like to kindly ask you to help me achieve my goal of raising over £150 for Cancer Research.
