Butterfly Giving is a charity dedicated to fighting teenage cancer.
We believe that every teenager should be entitled to education in cancer prevention. Currently, 6 teenagers are diagnosed with cancer each and every day in the UK. This needs to stop.
Statistically, 1 in 3 people will be affected by cancer during their life time. By introducing cancer prevention into schools, we are leaving our young people a life time legacy.
If you believe that our young people deserve this fundamental knowledge; prove it. Please sign Butterfly Giving’s petition to make cancer prevention a compulsory part of the curriculum for UK schools.
Will you join the fight against teenage cancer?
We, the undersigned, call on the Government to include cancer prevention as part of the national curriculum in UK schools.
Without this vital knowledge, young people may be subjected to a potentially life threatening illness unecessarily.
This knowledge will undoubtedly remain with young people well into their adulthood and may help to decrease cancer rates across the UK and assist in early diagnosis - both better for the patient and the NHS.
The undersigned therefore call for a review of the national curriculum and the inclusion of cancer prevention.
Our young people deserve better.
