March of the MOD's 2020 events. March of the Mods is currently raising money and awareness for Teenage Cancer Trust, and these are some of the reasons why. Some Facts & Statistics:
• Every day in the UK, six young people aged 13 to 24 are told they have cancer. That’s about 2,100 young people a year.
• Cancer is the number one cause of non-accidental death in young adults in the UK.
• One in 312 males and one in 361 females will get cancer before they are 20.
• Boys up to the age of 15 have a one in 450 chance of developing cancer, rising to one in 208 by the time they reach 24. Girls up to the age of 15 have a one in 517 chance of developing cancer, rising to one in 239 by the time they reach 24.
• Incidence rates are now higher in 13 to 24 year-olds than in children, yet survival rates for this age group have not improved as much.
• Young people get some of the most aggressive cancers. But because only 0.6% of all cancers occur in young people, they are often misdiagnosed initially. This decreases their chances of survival and can mean they are excluded from clinical trials.
