Sir Michael Morpurgo - Parton
Following the retirement of HRH Princess Alexandra as our Patron in the Autumn of 2017 we are delighted to announce the appointment in 2018 of Sir Michael Morpurgo.
Best known as the author of ‘War Horse’, Michael has recently revealed his own diagnosis with cancer of the larynx.
Now as Oracle’s patron, he intends to do all that he can to help Oracle in raising awareness and funding for head and neck cancer research. In the UK, head and neck cancer is now the sixth most common cancer with a new person being diagnosed every 35 minutes.
Michael Morpurgo said:
“Head and neck cancers are becoming frighteningly common. Sadly, levels of awareness about head and neck cancers are very low and it does not attract the level of support or funding that it should. I hope that by working with Oracle, we can change this.”
