HOW WE HAVE BEEN FUNDING CANCER RESEARCH
There are over 200 different types of cancer, and one in two of us will develop some form of cancer during our lifetime. That's a scary statistic. The four most common types of cancer are:
- Breast cancer
- Lung cancer
- Prostate cancer
- Bowel cancer
In the UK, someone is diagnosed with cancer every two minutes. The above four types of cancers combined accounted for over half (53%) of all new cancer cases in 2017 in the UK. There are approximately 165,000 cancer deaths every year in the UK, which equates to about 450 every day. Cancer accounts for over a quarter (28%) of all deaths in the UK according to research carried out in 2017, and roughly someone dies of cancer every four minutes in the UK.
With cancer causing devastation to millions of people across the world, we knew that we had to do something to help fight it. You may remember that back in October of last year we launched our initiative to help raise funds to support cancer research, and introduced our 'Soulmate Pink' juice to reflect the cause.
We are so pleased to announce that since 31st October 2020, with your help we have been able to fund 31 days of clinical trials. Unfortunately, clinical trials are costly to run as they need funds for: treatments, procedures, tests, staff, technology, administrative work, hospital stays for patients taking part.
Every time you purchase from Soulmate, you are supporting cancer research and we hope to keep boosting these funds throughout 2021, so that we can eventually find a cure and/or more effective treatment.
