A cancer survivor from Lincolnshire has written a letter to all the party leaders asking them to make sure that cancer treatment in the UK is higher up the political agenda and that the next Prime Minister thinks more creatively about how to fund it.

Amelia Bailey, 45, from Washingborough, who works as a mental health nurse, recently survived breast cancer and says that the most recent cuts to The Cancer Drug Fund are a major concern.

Amelia said: “With the odds of one in two people developing cancer in their lifetime from Cancer Research UK. This is why I believe this issue should be further up the political agenda.”
