"I'm so happy that my mum was able to come to my wedding"
Sadly just two weeks later, and 20 weeks before her grandson was born, she died of lung cancer. "After having a severe cough that wouldn’t go away, she was referred to a specialist who told us the devastating news that she had lung cancer. As mum wasn’t a smoker, lung cancer was the last thing we’d suspected.”
More than 25,000 cancer patients joined one of our clinical trials last year.
We are committed to funding cancer research of the highest international calibre.
