Cancer Research UK want survival in the UK to be among the best in the world. They’re focusing in four key areas – working to help prevent cancer, diagnose it earlier, develop new treatments and optimise current treatments by personalising them and making them even more effective. Mission Their vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. In the 1970’s, less than a quarter of people survived. But over the last 40 years, survival has doubled – today half will survive. Their ambition is to accelerate progress and see three-quarters of people surviving the disease within the next 20 years.
