“I’d lost both of my parents to lung cancer by the age of 30.
I have probably experienced no more cancer deaths than other people, but I’m very motivated to help.

Dr Ashley Nicholls (image on the left) is a Research Associate at the Cancer Research UK Cambridge Institute. He appreciates the generous gifts left in Wills, “Personally, it makes me feel proud that people are interested in what we do. It also makes us all part of a team, pushing in the same direction. Knowing people are willing to support me really motivates me to push myself.”
