We launched the award winning #CatchUpWithCancer campaign when Craig and Mandy Russell lost their daughter Kelly at the age of just 31 to bowel cancer.

Her life expectancy was drastically cut short after her cancer treatment was stopped as a direct result of the Covid-19 response.

We’re asking the government and the NHS to boost cancer services to tackle the cancer diagnosis and treatment backlog caused by Covid-19.
