  • When I received the news I was in remission form throat cancer.....it was the best two minutes of my life. I would say make as big a donation as possible as you don't know when it's going to affect you or your family.

Situation

The charity is trying to improve accuracy and detection rates for Cancer, Heart Disease and Dementia. In East Riding Yorkshire and North East Lincolnshire; cancer is a leading cause of death in the area as is heart disease. Dementia is an increasingly common disease and individuals and their families are having to live with the consequences.

Solution

Cancer survival can be improved by early and more accurate detection as can heart disease with patients being able to change their lifestyles and improve their quality of life. Earlier detection of dementia will allow recognition and treatment making the final years of life more bearable for both the individual and their families.
