In 2006 Madeleine Mulgrew cancer patient and founder member of Cancer Choices received the first ever UK “MACMILLAN VICKY CLEMENT JONES AWARD” Vicky Clement-Jones was given just three months to live after being diagnosed with inoperable ovarian cancer. In fact, she went on to survive for five years – long enough to establish Cancer-backup in 1985 and ensure its success. Macmillan and Cancer-backup merged in 2008 to provide the best cancer information for everyone. The Vicky Clement-Jones Award is for volunteers who have or had cancer themselves, and who give their time to make a major difference to the lives of other people with cancer.
