Research continues to help save lives from cancer, Cancer Research UK's chief executive Harpal Kumar has said, after a new report showed that death rates for four common cancers in the UK had fallen by almost a third since the early 1990s.
The UK remains a world leader in cancer research, responsible for many of the breakthroughs that have reduced the impact of cancer. But while the death rate for the four biggest cancer killers falls, it's vital to remember that more needs to be done to help bring even better results over the coming years.
We're determined that the research we fund will help save more lives, developing better, kinder treatments which will beat cancer sooner.
