Less Survivable Cancers Awareness Day

Andrew has provided the following update on Less Survivable Cancers Awareness Day

Andrew reports on Facebook: "Today is Less Survivable Cancers Awareness Day, which aims to raise the profile of the 6 less survivable cancers, to raise awareness of symptoms, and to highlight the critical importance of early diagnosis in improving survival.
