FORMER health secretary Jeremy Hunt has revealed he had cancer — and has since recovered.
The Tory MP said he will take part in a 5km charity race after the disease affected relatives “very dramatically”.
Mr Hunt, 55, will wear pink to represent Cancer Research UK in the Race for Life next month in Stoke Park, Guildford.
The South West Surrey MP is chairman of the Commons’ health and social care committee.
He said of his cancer scare: “I have had a minor one myself which has fortunately been resolved.
“So it’s touched my family very dramatically.
“There are lot of things we can do to improve our cancer survival rates.
“The more we do to raise money and awareness, the more lives we’ll save.”
He will be running with cancer survivor Rod Pluthero, 73, and fellow Tory MP Angela Richardson, 47.
