Bowel cancer: a clinical trial to improve treatment

A Bobby Moore Fund for bowel cancer research project
What's this project about?
Every day, more than 100 people are diagnosed with bowel cancer.
It is the second most common cancer in women after breast cancer, and the third in men after prostate and lung cancer.
Bowel cancer can spread to other internal organs such as the liver, if not caught and treated early.
Dr Ricky Sharma is leading a clinical trial called FOXFIRE, which hopes to significantly improve survival for people whose bowel cancer has spread to the liver.
FOXFIRE is supported by the Bobby Moore Fund for Cancer Research UK, which raises money for research into bowel cancer in memory of footballer Bobby Moore, who tragically died from bowel cancer aged just 51.
