Help Beat Cancer Sooner – Jenny Willott MP

July 9, 2013 3:57 PM

Liberal Democrat MP for Cardiff Central, Jenny Willott, is backing Cancer Research UK's latest awareness campaign to help beat cancer sooner.

Jenny is teaming up with Cancer Research UK to encourage people in Cardiff Central to get involved with the latest fundraising and awareness campaign from the charity.

With the number of people with cancer set to rise steeply by 2030, the charity has launched an inspiring summer awareness drive which aims to raise money to accelerate its groundbreaking research and bring cures faster. It features a series of TV, radio, and billboards ads across the UK which carry the bold message: 'One day, we will beat cancer. Help make it sooner.'

Commenting, Jenny Willott MP said:

"I'm delighted to support Cancer Research UK. Thanks to the generosity of its supporters, Cancer Research UK's work is helping to ensure more men, women and children diagnosed with this awful disease will survive. Everyone knows someone affected by cancer, so all of us need to do what we can to help Cancer Research UK beat cancer sooner."

Cancer Research UK's Executive Director of Policy and Information, Sarah Woolnough, said:

"Every step we take towards beating cancer relies on every pound donated, every hour volunteered, and every person getting involved with our campaigns and events such as Race for Life. So we hope people in Cardiff will really get behind us.

"It's great to have Jenny Willott MP's support in raising awareness, as there's still so much more we need to do to ensure no-one's life is cut short by cancer. But by boosting support and funding now, the best research teams will be able to develop better ways to prevent, control and cure the disease and help save many more lives."

As part of the campaign, Cancer Research UK is encouraging its supporters to take a million actions. This could include liking the charity's Facebook page, tweeting the campaign message or donating money at cruk.org.
