Peter Andre has launched a new foundation to help raise funds for Cancer Research UK.

Fans of the ‘Mysterious Girl’ singer know he was left devastated when his beloved brother Andrew lost his battle with cancer last year, and now Peter is launching the Peter Andre Foundation to “change the odds for people diagnosed with cancer in the future”.

In a statement he said: “I have a personal reason for wanting to raise money for research into cancer and raise awareness of this terrible disease – and to save more lives in the future.”
Peter’s foundation will raise money for the Cancer Awareness Roadshow run by Cancer Research UK, which aims to educate people about cancer and how to spot it early.
The Cancer Awareness Roadshow has four mobile units – in London, Manchester, Glasgow and North East England – and Peter says the Peter Andre Foundation will “fully fund the London unit this year and in years to come”.

Peter told fans: “I’m so excited about the launch of this Foundation. It means so much to me and my brothers and we’ll be doing all we can to help people understand how important it is to know their body and to go straight to their doctor about anything unusual. I do hope you’ll support us along the way.”

As well as detailing the Foundation on his official website, the singer appeared on ITV’s This Morning to announce the news.

Peter and his family were left devastated when elder sibling Andrew passed away on 16 December, and fans saw on ITV2’s Peter Andre – My Life last week that Peter is still mourning the loss of his brother.
