Joining cancer fight

Joining cancer fight

Ashfield councillor Jason Zadrozny has backed an appeal from Cancer Research UK to help save the lives of more people with cancer.

He has met volunteers at the charity’s shop on Outram Street, the oldest Cancer Research shop in the UK.
With predictions showing the number of people with the disease is set to rise steeply by 2030, Cancer Research UK says determined political action is needed to help more people survive.

In the run up to the General Election in May, the charity has launched a new campaign – Cross Cancer Out.
Themed on a ballot paper, it asks election candidates to back a raft of vital measures to ensure cancer patients are diagnosed much earlier and have greater access to the best possible treatments.

Jason said: “My dad, Richard, has recently been diagnosed with cancer. Like many people in Ashfield, it’s a cause that is close to my heart.

“While more people in Ashfield will be diagnosed with cancer in the future, there is good news — Cancer Research UK’s work is helping to ensure more survive.
