Allen Knight is a trained rocket scientist who ran his own management consultancy business for nearly 20 years until he was diagnosed with bladder cancer in 2010. His experience with bladder cancer motivated him to become more involved with his national patient organisation, Action Bladder Cancer UK where he served as the Chair. He decided to sell his successful business and dedicate 100% of his time to helping others whom are experiencing bladder cancer. He works passionately to improve bladder cancer diagnosis and treatment, to raise awareness, to support patients and to improve outcomes. He also served as a patient representative on a number of bladder cancer clinical trials and was a committee member of the National Institute for Health Research in the UK. In his spare time, he loves to fly light aircraft, walk and travel.
