I’ve lost lots of people to cancer, and I’ve lived in Yorkshire a long while. My husband, my son and my daughter-in-law all work in the medical field, so they’ve all seen cancer up close. Anything that will help research and save lives, and any research that will encourage people to reduce their risk of cancer, is worth supporting.”
