The Institute of Cancer Research, London, congratulates the founders of the Chris Lucas Trust, our family charity partner, who are among those recognised in The King’s Birthday Honours List.

Lynn and Lynn Lucas, who set up the Chris Lucas Trust after their son died of a rare soft tissue cancer in 2000, have both received a Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in honour of their dedication to fundraising.

Chris Lucas was diagnosed with rhabdomyosarcoma at the age of 15. Despite twice battling back from the disease, achieving great GCSE results and starting a career in graphic design, Chris died three years later.

We are world-leaders in the study of cancer in children, teenagers and young adults. We are so grateful for the generous support of our family charity partners, who drive forward our research immeasurably. READ MORE
