So many of us have lost loved ones to cancer, but all of us can support the research that will beat it. That’s why we at Omaze have teamed up with Cancer Research UK ), whose pioneering work into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer has helped save millions of lives. Below, Cancer Research UK’s Chief Executive, Michelle Mitchell, gives us 3 reasons why we should all support their incredible work:
1. One in two of us will get cancer in our lifetime*
“It’s hard to find anyone who hasn’t been affected by cancer in some way. It touches the lives of people all around the world and it can be devastating. Together with our partners and supporters, Cancer Research UK’s vision is to bring forward the day when all cancers are cured. When people support us, it means we can do even more to make that vision a reality.”
2. Research is saving lives
“Decades of hard work and painstaking research has led to breakthroughs that save lives and keep families together. In the 1970s, just 1 in 4 people survived their disease for 10 years or more. Now, 2 in 4 people survive. Our work has been at the heart of that progress and survival in the UK has doubled in the last 40 years. With your support, we can keep accelerating progress and help save even more lives.”
3. Together, we can beat cancer
“This past year proves, more than any other, the value of investing in science and medical research, and what can be achieved with collective focus and collaboration. Just like science is our route out of the pandemic, science is our route to beating cancer. But we can only continue vital science and research with your support.”
You can show your support by entering the Omaze Million Pound House Draw, Ascot. That’s because we’ll be donating 80% of the net proceeds to this incredible charity. You really could make a massive difference:
“We’re so pleased to be partnering with Omaze on the Million Pound House Draw, Ascot. We hope to raise as much money as possible to continue our vital work to save more lives. Our partnerships accelerate our progress, and through collaborating with companies like Omaze we achieve far more than we could do alone,” Michelle said.
