Sir Alex Ferguson fronts lung cancer campaign

Sir Alex Ferguson, who lost both parents to lung cancer, has been chosen to front a Scottish Government campaign warning people of the dangers posed by the disease.

Devised by the Leith Agency the campaign stresses early diagnosis as a means to raise awareness of the ‘devastating impact’ of the condition.

Ferguson said: “I wanted to be involved in this campaign as I lost both my parents to lung cancer. I know the devastating impact cancer can have on families.

“Cancer's not what it used to be and there are now treatments that can save or extend your life. So rather than doing nothing about it, I urge anyone who is worried to get checked as early as they can."
