Julian supports Cancer Research UK on World Cancer Day

February 9, 2015

Julian is backing an appeal from Cancer Research UK to save the lives of more cancer patients, as news comes that one in two people will be diagnosed with the disease at some point in their lives.

At the event Cancer Research UK told MPs that support for public awareness campaigns, increasing screening uptake and ensuring equal access to innovative evidence-based treatments are key to saving more lives.

Layla Theiner, Head of Public Affairs at Cancer Research UK, told MPs: “The increase in the lifetime risk of getting cancer is primarily because more people are surviving into old age, when the disease is more common. That’s why we’re calling on MPs and parliamentary candidates from all political parties to commit to ‘Cross Cancer Out’ and help ensure no-one’s life is cut short by this devastating disease.”

After the event, Julian said “It is fantastic news that Cancer Research UK are making huge advances in the battle against the disease. With three people being diagnosed with cancer every hour in Yorkshire, it is more important than ever before that we work together to detect cancer earlier to provide patients with the best possible chance of recovery”.
