Action Cancer NI 40th anniversary

May 20, 2013

Ian Paisley MP supports Action Cancer NI with their 40th anniversary event launched in Parliament.

This week in Westminster, our local MP Ian Paisley was supporting Action Cancer NI as they launched three signature legacy projects as part of thAction Cancereir 40th anniversary celebrations in Parliament.

Attending their flagship event, Ian Paisley witnessed the launch of One Life, Different Journeys that will provide cancer prevention, early detection and support services for the months and years to come. The £1m funding required for these projects will be made possible by a contribution from the charity and committed funds from Marks & Spencer; approaches are still being made to a number of Charitable Trusts and Foundations, who Action Cancer hope will support the campaign,
The One Life, Different Journeys is the development of three new programmes by Action Cancer which will provide resources for people at great risk of cancer or living with a cancer diagnosis.

Speaking after the event Ian Paisley MP said:

“The work Action Cancer undertake throughout Northern Ireland is phenomenal and we should never underestimate the positive impact they have on countless families who are living with cancer.

I also commend them highly for coming into Parliament and launching this innovative and exciting campaign which aims to help those in need even further than they already do. I would encourage all Charitable Trusts and Foundations to get behind the ‘One Life, Different Journeys’ campaign and to help make the lives of cancer sufferers and their families in Northern Ireland that little bit easier.”
