“Many people think the only way to help research is to give a financial donation, but when it comes to a broad reaching study such as CLEAR, we’re totally reliant on the courage and goodwill of cancer patients in the community.”

“We have an enormous diversity of lifestyles: we can compare and get meaningful answers about the causes of cancer”
