Rt Hon David Evennett, MP for Bexleyheath and Crayford, attended a parliamentary event held by Cancer Research UK on Wednesday 12 July.
At the event, Mr Evennett met some of Cancer Research UK’s dedicated volunteer Campaign Ambassadors, and found out how many people in his constituency are diagnosed with cancer each year.
Mr Evennett commented: “one life lost to this terrible disease is one too many. Survival in the UK has doubled over the last 40 years and that is partly down to some of Cancer Research UK’s pioneering research. However, there is still more to do and I am delighted to be here today to show my support for Cancer Research UK’s driving mission to beat cancer sooner.”
