Commited to beating cancer

Tuesday, February 9, 2010

Sheffield Heeley MP Meg Munn backed efforts to beat cancer at a major Cancer Research UK event in Parliament. The new campaign, “Commit to Beat Cancer”, calls on the next government to make the UK’s cancer outcomes among the best in Europe in the next then years.

  

Meg said:

 

“One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer, and while results for beating the disease are improving all the time they could be improved.

 

It’s very important to keep cancer high on the political agenda because while I’m proud of the world-class medical research we undertake in the UK more still needs to be done to prevent, detect and treat cancer.”

 

Aisling Burnand, Executive Director at Cancer Research UK said:

 

“We are very grateful to Meg for supporting our campaign. It is crucial that MPs continue to support measures to improve the UK’s cancer outcomes. 

 

Ten-year survival rates have doubled over the last thirty years and our work has been at the heart of that progress. Our five year survival rates, however, still lag behind the best performing countries in Europe such as Sweden, Norway and Finland.

We must maintain momentum and the Commit To Beat Cancer campaign reflects our supporters’ desire to keep up the political pressure.”
