A cancer scientist has called for more research into cancer after figures showed a rise in the number of people diagnosed with the disease.
These figures reinforce the vital need for more research to better prevent, treat and cure cancer.
As the population ages, more people than ever before will be told: 'you have cancer'.
Research is the only way we'll be able to reduce the devastating impact of the disease.
One day we will beat cancer. The more research we do, the sooner that day will come.
