Clarke attends Cancer Research information event
SOUTH Antrim MLA Trevor Clarke attended an event in Stormont last week to learn about the importance of spotting cancer early.
The DUP Assemblyman joined Cancer Research UK staff, clinicians and patients to learn more about how people in Northern Ireland can spot the signs and symptoms of the disease at an early stage.
Mr Clarke stated: “When cancer is diagnosed at an early stage, treatment is often simpler and more likely to be effective.
“I wholeheartedly support Cancer Research UK’s call to spot cancer as soon as possible. Early detection saves lives.”
Cancer Research UK’s Public Affairs Manager, Vicky Crichton, said: “We were delighted to have Mr Clarke helping us to spread the word.
“More people than ever are now surviving cancer, but we know that further cancer deaths could be prevented each year if more cancers were diagnosed at an early stage.
“If you notice any unusual or persistent changes in your body, visit your GP without delay. If it is something serious then finding it early could make all the difference.”
