The campaign first launched in 2015 and was filmed in a documentary style, detailing the reality of everyday life for cancer patients.

According to Cancer Research UK, the new focus will highlight the fact that research is progressing, enabling the development of new and better treatments, which are helping more people survive cancer than in previous years.

Jo Cooke, director of brand, marketing and innovation at Cancer Research UK, told PRWeek the campaign was designed to show that through research, real action is being taken to beat cancer.

Cooke said: “We want to show how the public’s generous donations are really making a difference and how the work we are undertaking is improving cancer survival and providing hope for people suffering with this disease.”
