Cancer, unfortunately, will affect almost everyone directly or indirectly. Mark has met Cancer Research UK’s dedicated volunteer Campaign Ambassadors and is working with colleagues in Parliament and locally to draw attention to early warning signs and funding.
Over the next five years, two million people will be diagnosed with cancer across the UK, so Cancer Research UK needs political support in order to continue to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. In our Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCG) of NHS East and North Hertfordshire there are around 2,800 cancer cases and 1,200 cancer deaths per year.
Cancer survival in the UK is still lagging behind other countries and too many cancers are diagnosed at an advanced stage, when they are harder to treat successfully.
