Cancer has taken my mother, my uncle and my grandmother. A number of other family members (myself included) have had skin cancer. And we’re very far from being alone. Cancer Research UK estimate that 50% of us will get cancer at some stage during our lives. Half of us!
So what can we do ? I’m no expert but it seems to me that there are three things we can all do to fight back :
- Donate to Cancer Research to help them continue their world leading research that benefits people across the globe.
- Be vigilant – catching cancer early greatly increase survival rates.
- Lead an active, healthy lifestyle. Cancer Research estimates that 40% of cancers are avoidable with the right lifestyle.
