Since launching Cancer Research UK’s Peter Andre Fund has raised over £300,000
This money has helped improve early cancer diagnosis by funding a unit on the Cancer Awareness Roadshow Unit.
The information that these Roadshow units are providing is potentially life-saving as experts estimate that up to 4 in 10 cancers could be prevented through lifestyle changes.
By knowing your body and learning what’s right for you, you’ll have the confidence to notice any changes and get them checked out much sooner.
Catching cancer in its early stages means it’s usually easier to treat and increases chances of survival.
Cancer Awareness Roadshow Unit
This unit visits local communities and our friendly, trained nurses talk to people about how they can reduce their risk of cancer and spot signs and symptoms at an early stage. They also provide support to help people make positive changes to their lifestyle. On board you can:
Have your BMI measured
Get advice on how to stop smoking
Pick up information about leading a healthier life-style
Learn about the different cancer screening programmes available to help detect cancer at an earlier stage
