Description - Ulster Cancer Foundation Belfast Charities & Voluntary Organisations Belfast
Cancer Focus Northern Ireland is your local cancer champion, here to help you and your family if you have cancer. We'll help your community take positive steps to a healthier life, to lower your risk of cancer and we are determined to bring a more hopeful future by funding ground-breaking research.Every year in Northern Ireland around 11, 200 local people get the news that they have cancer. Thankfully two thirds will survive but, unfortunately, we still lose more than 4, 000 local people every year to the disease.
We know that the earlier cancer is diagnosed, the more likely we are to survive and treatment can be less aggressive. We also know that we can prevent two thirds of cancers if we make healthy lifestyle choices.
These are the same healthy choices that reduce the risk of other chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
