Crawley MP Henry Smith has joined leading health experts to find out more about Cancer Research UK’s new plan to accelerate progress and help save more lives.

Mr Smith joined in interactive experiments with cancer researchers, learning about the biology of cancer and cutting-edge work which aims to cure cancers.

He said: “I’ve always been passionate about better support and awareness, but with my mum dying of cancer two years ago my support has only been re-enforced.

“It’s truly inspiring to see what research can achieve. That’s why I’m backing Cancer Research UK’s campaign to make every moment count in the fight against cancer and I’m encouraging everyone to join me.

“I was proud a few years ago to open the new Digital Mammography Unit at Crawley Hospital but there’s no room for complacency. I wholeheartedly support Cancer Research UK’s aim to improve survival through the earlier diagnosis of cancer and greater access to the best treatment possible.”
