We all know someone who has suffered from cancer - a distant relative or a family member perhaps. I myself lost my grandparents to cancer.
Each year Cancer Research UK’s scientists get closer to beating cancer, and they’ve helped double survival rates in the last 40 years. But we can’t stop there.
It’s crucial to remember that cancer is not one disease – it’s more than 200. All different, unique diseases, which require different approaches for treatment. Treatments that work for some cancers don’t work for others and sometimes those treatments simply stop working.Only worldwide research will enhance our understanding of cancer and help us find and develop better, more effective treatments.With our continued support Cancer Research UK can turn this research into breakthroughs that save millions of lives.
On 21st September, I’ll be hitting the streets of London to take part in the Cancer Research Shine Night Marathon Walk 🏃🏻♀️🌙⭐️This is a 26.2 mile (42 km) course that’s walked by thousands under moonlight, together helping to fight back cancer and remember the loved ones we’ve sadly lost from this disease.
If you are not walking the marathon but want to take part somehow, you can still donate to Cancer Research UK! Thanks:)
