Cancer52 launches Manifesto for rare and less common cancers

Cancer52 is pleased to launch  ‘The Other Half. A manifesto to transform outcomes for people with rare and less common cancers’. The manifesto was launched alongside members, patient representatives, MPs, and stakeholders at a reception in the House of Commons, Westminster on 16th April 2024, hosted by Will Quince MP. 

In the manifesto Cancer52 outlines three key priorities.  

Priority 1: Reduce the number of deaths from all cancers by 15% by 2040, saving 80,000 lives, and address health inequalities that contribute to poorer outcomes. 

Priority 2: Increase early diagnosis of rare and less common cancers which will improve patient experience, quality of life and help save more lives. 

Priority 3: A new national mission on rare and less common cancers with patient involvement at its core.
