Macmillan Cancer Support has welcomed the pledges in Labour's Manifesto on cancer treatment.
The manifesto includes pledges to improve early diagnosis, allowing people to die at home, and spending money from a tax on properties worth over £2m for an "NHS Time to Care Fund".
Dr Fran Woodard, director of policy and research at Macmillan Cancer Support said: "Macmillan Cancer Support welcomes the package of commitments in the Labour Health Manifesto which, if implemented, have the ability to make a real difference to the lives of people with cancer in England and their loved ones.
"Labour have committed to ensuring our cancer survival rates match the best in Europe through improving early diagnosis; making sure NHS staff are supported to treat every single patient with dignity and respect during treatment; and allowing people with the greatest care needs, including those with cancer, to die at home if they wish.
"These are the three areas of cancer care which people with cancer told us mattered most to them this general election, and which Macmillan has been championing with all Westminster parties.
"In addition Labour have committed to ensuring family and friends who are looking after someone with cancer get the right emotional, practical and physical support they desperately need by placing a new duty on the NHS to identify carers.
"Macmillan is looking to all political parties to make cancer care a priority in their manifestos. We will then be urging whoever wins to implement the promises they've made and improve the lives of people with cancer."
