Why run for Cancer Research UK?

Mary from Cambridge said, 'It’s so important that we support the charities that find ways to get us away from cancer.'

I’m labelled as a cancer patient. I’ve never been patient, so I say I’m on a cancer journey. You may not be on a cancer journey, but it’s really alarming that one in two people will have the label of cancer. It could be your friend, your mother, another relative, even your baby, and it’s so, so important that we support the charities and research that’s finding ways to get us away from this label, so we have a future.
