MPs from across the UK joined us to don their boxing gloves and back The Biggest Fight Against Bone Cancer at our first ever parliamentary reception on 1 February 2017.
We're very grateful to our local MP Stuart Andrew for hosting us in the House of Commons and for his continued support to us as a charity.
John Baron, Chairman of All Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer, was in attendance as we discussed the need for early diagnosis and called upon MPs to advocate our GP e-learning module.
Huge thanks goes to former patient Jamie Wood and family, who gave up their time to share their story. Jamie was diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma in 2010 and underwent 16 courses of chemotherapy and 3 rounds of operations as part of his treatment.
Thank you to everyone who wrote to their MP and encouraged them to attend. Together, we will raise more money than ever before to fight this rare but devastating disease.
Finally, thanks to all MPs who supported to the event. We look forward to working with them in the future to help raise vital awareness of bone cancer at a national level.
