I was proud to support Less Survivable Cancers Awareness Day, to raise awareness about the six less survivable cancers – cancers of the liver, lungs, brain, oesophagus, stomach, and pancreas.

Over 90,000 people are diagnosed with one of these six cancers every year in the UK and they account for over 40% of all common cancer deaths. Currently, only 16% of people diagnosed with a less survivable cancer will live for 5 years or more after diagnosis.

Early diagnosis is crucial in saving lives and it was great to speak to Monica from the Liver Trust about the importance of closing the deadly cancer gap for less survivable cancers.
