Professor Pat Price, leading oncologist and co-founder of the #CatchUpWithCancer campaign responding to the Royal Announcement, said:
“In this worrying time, our hearts go out to the King and his family. The outpouring of well wishes from millions of people reflects the collective concern we all share. The King’s openness about his battle with cancer is a powerful reminder that 1 in 2 of us may face cancer at some point in our lives.
“It puts cancer on the national agenda at such an important time. If anyone is experiencing their own concerns about cancer, it’s important to consult with a doctor. Catching cancer with an early diagnosis and then having quick treatment is crucial. The entire country and cancer community stands with him and sends every good wish and support.”
