The gap between the more and less survivable cancers is 50%.
We aim to close this gap.
We have 5 core objectives:
Raise awareness of symptoms
Speed up paths to treatments
Remove barriers to treatment trials
Set government backed survival targets for each cancer
Increase investments in research
The less survivable cancers represented by the Taskforce are lung, liver, oesophageal, brain, pancreatic and stomach cancer.
Only by working together can we challenge decades of neglect and underfunding and level up the less survivable cancers with those where a great deal of progress has been made.
Because everyone with cancer deserves a fair chance of survival.
HELP US CLOSE THE GAP
We need to take action on less survivable cancers now
THE TASKFORCE IS MADE UP
