Suzy Stride  PPC is backing Cancer Research UK’s ‘We will beat cancer sooner’ campaign to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. 

She  attended the charity’s stand at the Labour party conference in Manchester to find out what she can do to beat cancer sooner in Harlow, learning more about cancer in Harlow.

Approximately 1501 cancer cases were confirmed in the West Essex area in the last year, resulting in 714 deaths. 24 % of Harlow residents smoke 5% above the national average of 19%. Around a quarter of all cancers are smoking related.

Thanks to research, survival rates in the UK have doubled in the last 40 years. But despite this success, Cancer Research UK says there is still much more to do to ensure UK survival rates are equal to the best in Europe.

As more people are diagnosed with cancer each year, the charity wants to accelerate progress to improve cancer outcomes. The earlier patients can be diagnosed and access the innovative treatments they need, the more lives will be saved.

Suzy Stride PPC said: “I was inspired to find out what I can do to help beat this devastating disease and help people in Harlow”

“More cancer patients are surviving than ever before, but with more and more people being diagnosed there is an urgent need to accelerate research. I want to do everything I can to ensure cancer is detected earlier and that brilliant research can be translated into treatments for patients faster.

“That’s why I’m backing Cancer Research UK’s ‘We will beat cancer sooner’ campaign and I hope local people will show their support by helping to raise vital funds.”

Today, two in four people survive cancer. Suzy Stride PPC is encouraging people in Harlow to help make it three in four within the next twenty years by supporting Cancer Research UK in any way they can whether it’s making a regular donation, taking goods to their local shop, returning their Race for Life sponsorship money or signing up to March on Cancer this October.
