Find out more about the charity I am supporting below. The following information is taken from their website http://www.cancerresearchuk.org
Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to beating cancer through research. We are fighting cancer on all fronts, finding new ways to prevent, diagnose and treat it to save more lives. We are entirely funded by the public. With your help, we can ensure more people beat cancer.
Who Cancer Research UK are…
We pioneer life-saving research to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.
From our volunteers and supporters to our scientists, doctors and nurses, we’re all here to save more lives by preventing, controlling and curing all cancers. Together, we’re leading the world in discovering and developing newer, kinder treatments and getting closer to cures. As a result we’ve helped double survival rates in just 40 years.
But we can’t stop there. Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer and this statistic is getting worse. We don’t receive Government funding for our research, so every step towards beating cancer relies on every pound donated. Research saves lives and our work is critical to ensuring more people beat this devastating disease.
Sooner or later we will find a way to cure all cancers. Let’s make it sooner!
