World Cancer Research Fund does really pioneering work. I firmly believe in the importance of cancer prevention. I’ve known so many people die of cancer, and even with the best treatment it’s a terrible experience for them and their loved ones.

That’s why I’ve now updated my will and decided to include a gift to World Cancer Research Fund. By doing this I’m confident I’m making a real difference – helping prevent cancer for future generations.
