Leicester cancer patients appear in new Cancer Research UK TV advert

The touching friendship of two Leicestershire mums going through cancer treatment together is the focus of an emotional TV advert from Cancer Research UK this Christmas.

Mandie Stace and Jude Price, who have both been treated for lymphoma at the Leicester Royal Infirmary, appear in a new series of films for the charity’s ‘Right Now’ campaign, which launch on Boxing Day (26 December) and will be on air during Christmas and New Year.

Cancer Research UK’s powerful and emotive ‘Right Now’ campaign features TV, poster and radio adverts and aims to show the reality of cancer for patients like Jude and Mandie, their friends and family.

It features a series of moving films - showing real patients in real-life moments - which call on supporters to take action in the fight against cancer.

The campaign was filmed at Leicester Royal Infirmary and Glenfield Hospital. It captures documentary-style footage of doctors, nurses, scientists, researchers, cancer patients and their loved ones to highlight the everyday reality of treatment.
