Prospective MP and NHS Campaigner, Andrew Percy, has formally pledged his support to two campaigns committed to supporting research into cancer.Andrew has signed up to both Cancer Research UK’s Cancer Commitment and the Breast Cancer Campaign 2010. Both campaigns have been launched in the run up to the general election with the aim of securing a pledge from election candidates that they will support vital research into cancer and do everything they can to improve cancer research and treatment.
Prospective MP, Andrew Percy says, "A couple of years ago I campaigned on behalf of women in this constituency who were waiting too long for breast cancer screening and so I was happy to support these pledges.
"125 women every day are diagnosed with breast cancer, making it the UK’s most common form of cancer. I hope that more and more candidates and MPs will sign this pledge so that whoever forms the next government, we can be sure that cancer research will remain a top priority.
"Like most people, my family has been touched by cancer and I am more than happy to do whatever I can to support action in tackling this dreadful disease."
