We’re back with another episode of our subseries, Longer, better lives! This series unpacks our recently published manifesto, Longer, Better Lives: A Manifesto for Cancer Research and Care.    

You might recognise our next guest, as she was part of our ‘Together We Are Beating Cancer’ campaign during September, featuring on a TV advert as well as billboards and posters on display across the UK.  

Dr Mei-Ling Lancashire is a GP who was diagnosed with triple-negative breast cancer 2 years ago. In this episode, Sophie sits with Mei-Ling to talk about her cancer experience and why she believes politicians need to start prioritising cancer.
