Why we are tackling cancer
Cancer is one of the world’s greatest health challenges. In the UK, 1 in 2 people will get cancer in their lifetime.**
According to Cancer Research UK, there are around 375,000 cancer cases in the UK every year – that's around 1,000 every day.
And according to Yorkshire Cancer Research, approximately 30,000 people are diagnosed with cancer every year in Yorkshire. People are also more likely to be diagnosed and die from cancer in Yorkshire than almost anywhere else in England.
We want to change this.
