We are so excited to be this years Official Charity Partner for the Deep RiverRock Belfast City Marathon!
By running the Belfast City Marathon for Cancer Focus NI youll be helping to fund ground breaking research. There have been exciting recent advances in immunology and cancer. Immunotherapy is developing new ways to highlight cancer cells so our own natural immune system can detect, respond and destroy these cells.
Recently Immunotherapy has brought very welcomed advances to the treatment of lung cancer and malignant melanoma both cancers where there are fast mutating cells, few treatment options and a high mortality rate.
This research project would see the advances that immunotherapy has brought to the treatment of these cancers and would be delivered to patients with oesophageal and pancreatic cancers. The overall aim is to develop new treatment options and therefore save lives here in Northern Ireland and eventually way beyond our shores.
So this year we ask you to #makeitcount and help us to raise funds for this ground breaking research.
Together we will help even more people survive cancer.
