World Cancer Day 2016

I am sure we have all been affected by cancer – whether through family or friends – and so, on World Cancer Day 2016, it’s great to see that cancer rate deaths in the UK have fallen by almost 10% over the last 10 years.

There is still a lot to be done, however wonderful the lives saved. Thank you to all the amazing people who dedicate their lives to researching and developing new treatments, raising awareness and supporting cancer patients, not just today but every day. We at Macdonald Lewis Associates feel very proud to be part of an industry that does such amazing work.

The Cancer Research UK London Winter Run 2016

Whilst colder and wetter than she would have liked, Susan was delighted to spend Sunday morning indulging three of her passions by being one of the participants in the Cancer Research UK London Winter Run: running; time with friends; and raising awareness and funds for life saving research into cancer.

Money raised by the London Winter Run will advance research which is helping
more men, women and children across the UK survive cancer.

Clive Sanders, head of events at Cancer Research UK, said:

Around 345,000 people are diagnosed with cancer in the UK every year – that is more than 940 people every day. Cancer Research UK’s work has been at the heart of the progress that has seen survival rates double in the last forty years. We couldn’t have made that progress without the generosity and dedication of our supporters and we’re incredibly grateful to the thousands of runners who took to the chilly streets of London for the Winter Run and raised vital funds to help beat cancer.
