John Banaszkiewicz, fondly known as John B, was born and raised in Nelson, Lancashire.
He states his vision for the charity as…
“Our objective is to create a first of its kind walk-in centre as a pathway to early stage cancer detection which will help to improve survival rates in the East Lancashire region. It’s important to me that local people directly feel the benefit and have a clear idea of where their money is going. We have already received great support and backing from a lot of enthusiastic people, which makes me very proud of our community and optimistic about what we can achieve.”
