There is an exciting campaign happening across the waters to persuade the Government to aim to double the 5-year survival rate of the less survivable cancers in the next ten years.
The campaign is using the hashtag #28BY29 meaning, which is about raising the 5-year survival rate for these cancers from 14% to 28% by the year 2029.
We wish the campaign all our luck!
