Former Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant has given his support to a cancer charity campaigning for a new type of treatment to be made available in Britian.

Killing Cancer is a charity that is aiming to raise £50m to fund further trials into Photodynamic Therapy, a treatment that can help cure some forms of cancer by killing cells through a combination of drugs and light.

“It really is an injustice that this form of treatment is not available to everyone in the UK,” said Plant. “I have friends currently receiving PDT, but only because we pushed to get it.”

Plant is not alone in his support – he has been joined by a host of other celebrities such as The Who's Roger Daltrey, Alex Fergusson, Chris Tarrant and Sir David Frost, among others.

“Both my mother and father died of cancer,” said Sir Alex Fergusson, manager of Manchester United. “I think PDT is an amazing first-step option before resorting to surgery. More patients should have access to it in our hospitals and the NHS should accept the charity’s offer of equipment and training without delay.”
