Graham shows support for Cancer Research UK
On Wednesday 12th July Graham Stuart attended a Parliamentary reception to show his support for the vital work being carried out by Cancer Research UK.
Graham met with campaign ambassadors and other MPs to promote further awareness and support for those suffering with cancer. The Beverley and Holderness MP urged residents to do even more to help the thousands of cancer patients across the local area.
In NHS East Riding of Yorkshire CCG alone, there are around 2,200 cancer cases per year. Unfortunately, the number of people being diagnosed is expected to increase. Two million people will be told they have cancer across the UK during the next Parliament.
Cancer Research UK is the world’s leading charity dedicated to saving lives through research. By 2034, the organisation aims to ensure 3 in 4 people survive cancer. Cancer survival is improving and has doubled in the last 40 years in the UK.
Following the reception, Graham said: ‘It was terrific to see so many of my colleagues from Parliament here to support the incredibly important work done by Cancer Research UK, as well as all the other organisations who are trying their best to beat this terrible disease.’
