Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, showed his support for this year’s World Cancer Day by attending a Parliamentary event to meet with representatives from seven of the UK’s leading cancer charities who have joined forces to unite the nation and help people affected by cancer.
Cancer Research UK, Breast Cancer Care, Breast Cancer Now, CLIC Sargent, Anthony Nolan, Bowel Cancer UK and Marie Curie hope that by joining forces, the charities will make a bigger impact in transforming the lives of millions who are affected by cancer. To promote this coming together Unity Bands - made of two parts, knotted together, to symbolise strength in unity - are available from each charities outlets.
“One in two people born in the UK will develop cancer at some point in their lifetime.
“Following World Cancer Day on the 4th February I’m hoping people in Ellesmere Port and Neston will support cancer charities by wearing a Unity Band, making a donation or spreading the word on social media.
“Whatever your motivation – to remember a loved one, celebrate people who have overcome the disease, or to rally in support of those going through treatment – let World Cancer Day be a catalyst to get involved and transform the lives of millions of people who are affected by cancer.”
