Every two minutes, someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer, and it is predicted that one in two of us will be diagnosed at some point in our lives. But there is hope, with new pioneering ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer, over the past 40 years survival has doubled and today half of us will survive the disease.
