July's Featured Charity is Race For Life

1 July 2017

Cancer Research fund scientists, doctors and nurses to help beat cancer sooner and also provide cancer information to the public.

Public support helps this charity to fund life-saving research into the causes, prevention and the treatment of cancer, with a vision to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured.

Over the last 40 years, cancer survival rates in the UK have doubled.

During the 1970's only a quarter of people survived cancer, that figure is now half.

Cancer Research aims to accelerate progress to see three-quarters of people with cancer surviving the disease by 2034.
