Will you stand up to cancer?


So...October 26th 2018 is the day that Channel 4 will air their annual stand up to cancer appeal.


There are currently over 2.5 million people fighting cancer in the UK with that number increasing by, on average, 3% per year. It is said that as many as 1 in 3 people will now be diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lives. It is also more common now that we all seem to know someone who has suffered at the hands of cancer be it directly, or indirectly. Stand Up To Cancer is an annual fundraising campaign that aims to bring the UK together to help speed up the progress of life-saving cancer research. Stand Up To Cancer funds research, which takes developments in the labs and accelerates them into brand new tests and treatments for cancer patients who need them.


In recent years, we have seen so many news articles of new, breakthrough cancer treatments with survival rates vastly improved. However, charities such as Cancer Research UK are still working tirelessly to find a cure.


I have been personally affected by cancer after losing numerous family members to this awful disease. I have also had to stand by and watch as friends have lost their loved ones to it also. Therefore, I shall be making a donation to support the amazing work these guys do. Will you?
