Cancer Research- My pledge to help beat cancer

This month I pledged my support to help Cancer Research UK save more lives in Edinburgh South and across the UK.

I attended a parliamentary event held by Cancer Research UK in Westminster to find out how politicians can pressure the Government into keeping cancer at the top of its agenda.                

Over the course of this Parliament, 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.

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.
