There’s a 50/50 chance that you’ll be diagnosed with cancer by the age of 85, which means that nearly everyone has crossed paths with the physical pain, emotional anguish and mental anxiety that cancer sufferers and their families go through. Some kinds of cancer are very treatable, while others are not, and the sheer variety of differences means that a wide range of treatments and expertise are also required.
Huge advances in medicine over recent decades mean that life-saving new treatments are becoming available each year. Much of this research is funded by passionate individuals, through organisations that provide grants and facilities to scientists and doctors. Other organisations focus on reducing cancer risks (please wear sunscreen!) and on supporting children, families and individual cancer patients through their journeys.
