Bake it for Bone Cancer – Xiros charity bake sale

Xiros raised £247.79 in our charity bake sale and cake auction to support Bone Cancer Awareness Week 2017.

The Bone Cancer Research Trust is dedicated to fighting primary bone cancer through research. A diagnosis is made every 10 minutes somewhere in the world, and in the UK and Ireland an average of 12 patients are diagnosed every week.

Primary bone cancer is unusual in that it affects a wide range of age groups, and due to the rarity of this type of cancer and the symptoms being easily and often mistaken for other conditions, increasing public awareness is vital. Early diagnosis is a crucial factor in improving outcomes for patients.
