Charity no: 1089464
In 1970, only 25% of people diagnosed with cancer survived. By 2010, that figure had doubled, and today half of people will survive - the first time this has ever happened. By 2030, Cancer Research UK is aiming for the survival rate to be 75%.
Cancer Research UK is the largest independent cancer research charity in the world. Since 2002, it has worked to reduce the number of deaths from all types of cancer. Among its strategies are researching cancer biology and hard-to-treat cancers (such as pancreatic, lung, oesophageal cancers and brain tumours); developing new treatments; and campaigning for the best cancer services throughout the UK.
Like so many families, I have experienced the pain that cancer can cause when a loved one is faced with it. My great grandmother died in 1997 from complications of cancer; I lost one of my grandmothers to breast cancer in 2009 - and in 2014, after a three year battle, my other grandmother passed away from bowel cancer. This happened the same month that Elphame Arts was launched, and so it feels very right that my first charity artwork is in the name of Cancer Research UK.
