According to Cancer Research UK, one in two people in the UK will get cancer in their lifetime. Thankfully half of those diagnosed with cancer in England and Wales survive their disease for ten years or more, and survival from cancer is improving, with UK figures doubling in the last 40 years. This year, international Cancer Survivors Day falls on June 2nd. The awareness event is designed to be a celebration for those who have survived, offer hope for those recently diagnosed and highlight support. But what can you do to help a loved one with a diagnosis?
