THE KEVILLE FAMILYMark Keville shares his story after losing his wife, Kate, from breast cancer in 2011 and then tragically his youngest son, Robbie, just two years later from a brain tumour in 2016, aged just 10.
Stand Up To Cancer funds a dedicated trials team for all childhood cancers and this research is helping to transform survival for children's cancers. Today, more than three-quarters of children survive their cancer compared with just a third in 1970, that's at least 15,000 more children a year surviving their cancer.
DR COLIN WATTS' FLUORESCENT BRAIN SURGERY
Dr Colin Watts and his team from Cambridge University Hospitals are leading the rebellion against cancer with their glow-in-the-dark brain surgery trial. The “pink drink” used in the trial makes the cancerous cells glow bright pink under a UV light. This enables Colin to remove as much cancer from the brain as possible. And if all the cancer is removed then it simply cannot return.
