A cure for cancer

I was talking to a very intelligent educated chap the other day about cancer research (a field that I used to work in) and it came up that he felt that we were not really approaching a cure as the number of new cases continues to increase. I expressed the view that this was demographic, related to the age profile in the population and that the cures are more effective than they used to be. Here is Cancer Research UK's summary figure that I should have had on a flash card in my pocket (thought - could be in my androids phones picture gallery couldn't it?)
